  --apt package:foreignarch
was already failing properly, so only
needs to be handled properly

three patches for this are now running at my local instance, I'm afraid
the third brings some regressions ...

* piuparts-depends-dummy should be
    Architecture: $arch_of_package_to_be_tested
  and not Arch: all
  Please don't try to pass foo_i386.deb and bar_amd64.deb on the command
line :-)
* refactor settings.list_installed_files usage
* allow only some errors on dpkg -i some.deb
  for now: "dependency problems - leaving unconfigured"
  (as that can be fixed by a followup 'apt-get -f install')
  but not e.g. "package architecture (i386) does not match system (amd64)"
