we have an idling debian.org piuparts-slave running i386, we "just" lack code 
to make use of it... 

So this is another request for help with multi-arch support for piuparts: if 
someone wants to jump into piuparts coding, I'd be happy to help that person 
get started and get the code running on piuparts.d.o!

I'd like to work on this myself, but I'm not sure I will manage anytime soon. 
Mayyyyybe DebCamp...

I'm not sure I understand the purpose of the recheck, as the result would just 
confirm the trigger, or?
