The solution is to generate multiple packages, one for each
architecture.  This is the normal way in which Debian packages are

The problem you're running into is that you want to reuse the same
binary package on multiple architectures, which is not a standard way of
creating Debian packages.  The tools therefore have not been enhanced to
add features to support that (since Debian as a project doesn't much
care about that use case).
