Hi folks,

I've just pushed a patch to the ttf-dejavu package in Ubuntu to mark the
binary packages Multi-Arch: foreign, in compliance with the plan for
multiarch described at <https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MultiarchSpec>.  Since
some common 32-bit-only applications such as google earth have a dependency
on ttf-dejavu, having the fonts marked Multi-Arch: foreign will facilitate
being able to install those 32-bit packages directly on amd64 and let us get
rid of ia32-libs sooner for wheezy.
