The package is more or less smartphone exclusive, so basically
only interesting for ARM. Multi-Arch is helpful for armel vs armhf
vs arm64. I don't think this is important for wheezy, though.

Even more interesting is support for crosscompilers etc., but
the fso/shr related packages do not yet enable M-A for the -dev
packages, so obviously it's also irrelevant for wheezy.

=> IMHO removing M-A is not a huge issue

preparing a upload for testing was what I indented to do, too.
I planed to check how to fix this without removing M-A support,
though. It should be possible to do something like this in the
postrm script:

if [ !package_is_still_installed_for_another_arch ] ; then
    remove files

It should be something like "-1+wheezy1". This makes the version
bigger than the one currently in wheezy, but smaller than the one
currently in unstable.
