I guess so. Although it's a totally harmless change and 'multiarch'
is a Wheezy Goal so they probably would let it in if you did an
upload. But there is no real need to do so.

I find out with:
grep-aptavail -s Package -F Build-depends,Build-depends-indep grep-dctrl /var/lib/apt/lists/*Sources | sort | uniq

Package: ghc
Package: libcdio
Package: wine
Package: wine-unstable
Package: wings3d

Hmm, seems I can't count - that's 5 packages :-)

Principal hats:  Linaro, Emdebian, Wookware, Balloonboard, ARM
