You're right to remind us of the problems with this, btw. It's exactly
the kind of hell that Spot's proposal as-is would have us impose on the
secondary architectures. If packages are going to be absent on any given
architecture, that should happen only through a conscious decision on
the part of the maintainer -- not just automatically after a build
failure which is probably going to turn out to be a generic issue when
it's investigated anyway.
