We have a couple of different places re that architecture wildcard
support. Edos is one (and recently also the manual depwait resolution
has been replaced by edos); however, for edos, the architectures are
cut out by
  Dpkg::Deps::parse($_[0], ("reduce_arch" => 1, "host_arch" => $_[1]))->dump();
so it boils down whether lenny dpkg supports it (or to install an
appropriate backport on grieg, and change this to work with newer

On the other hand, the QD-replacement also may need to support
architectures. Currently it ignores the architecture from sources in
total, so this shouldn't make any difference. Inside of Pas, the
functions WB::QD::pasignore parses the lines, but this doesn't know
anything about wildcards (which might be nice to change).
