well, debian does not provide any infrastructure to construct
such a dependency line. note that it allready is quite a pain and
requires madison and quite a bit of scripting on top of it to
find out which packages are available just accross the archs of
ONE distro (eg.  testing), let alone two. what is the suggested
way to do this? i did some research on this and could not come up
with anything short of pulling ALL Packages.gz, and finding
the greates common subset of all. this seems awkward.
