It's not "every time there is a binnmu", it's every time there's a
binNMU _of a multi-arch:same package_, or we'd never schedule binNMUs at

s/binnmu/m-a:same binNMU/, as above.  Yes, this is annoying, but there
isn't a quick solution to the issue other than source uploads (and some
disagreement as to what the correct solution should be - see e.g.
