  Uhm, I stand corrected:

16:34 <dato> Yoe: do you know if the (new?) sbuild used by buildds copes with
             the situation above?
16:34 <Yoe> dato: yes, it should handle it
16:35 <Yoe> dato: it will install the preferred package, but either fall back
            if that doesn't exist on the given architecture,
16:35 <Yoe> or not touch whatever is already installed if one is
16:35 <dato> ok, sweet
16:35 <dato> I will mail -mentors again, sbuild in sid couldn't cope
16:35 <Yoe> for instance, many buildd chroots already have ssmtp installed, so
            an alternative like 'exim4 | mail-transport-agent' will not do
16:35 <Yoe> then sbuild in sid is broken
16:36 <Yoe> but no official autobuilder uses that one anyway; it's been
            modified so that it's useful to "normal" users as a generic build
16:37 <dato> Yoe: ok. has this been a recent change in the sbuild used by
             buildds, or has it been behaving like that for a long time already?
16:37 <Yoe> the latter
16:37 <Yoe> I don't recall it ever behaving differently, in fact

  Sorry for the false alarm. ;-)
