*Urgs* Just from staring at the quinn-diff source i find some very
strange things which have to break:

    159                   if (!strstr(source->architecture,binary_architecture_match) && !strstr(source->architecture,"any"))

Using "strstr" on architecture fields is simply wrong - It fits the
case where Architecture contains something like "i386, sparc, alpha" but
breaks on "mipsel" whereas we are looking for "mips".

One day we get the architecture "allqaida" or "anyrisc" *urgs*
