[Aptitude-devel] Bug#672340: [PATCH] aptitude: resolver always removes foreign-arch packages

Attached patch updates the problem resolver to better handle
multi-arch situations so that it no longer gets stuck trying to remove
all foreign-arch packages.

Affected users and interested persons should perform testing and
review on this.  The changes are relatively small but there is room
for regressions in complex dependency situations.

The patch has been developed and tested with aptitude 0.6.8.

If this works or does not work for you please comment, particularly if
you experience regressions.
