Just that this won't do it, because the changelogs for the different
arches will be binary different, so no win.

However, we discussed that during the multi-arch bof last Debconf, and
came to the conclusion that it would be better to not modify the
changelog as we do now, but instead create a new file
changelog.$arch.$version with the binNMU. This is a bit more
complicated because it can't be done as of now just within the source

Anyone implementing this is warmly welcome.
