Quoting Scott Ritchie (scottritchie at ubuntu.com):
> Package: fonts-unfonts-core
> Version: 1.0.2-080608-9
> If a user wants to install an i386 package depending on
> fonts-unfonts-core onto an amd64 system, it may erroneously come up
> as uninstallable as apt has no multiarch information on
> fonts-liberation.
> Please mark fonts-unfonts-core as multi-arch: foreign in
> debian/control to fix this.

Please notice that it might be a waste of time to do this for all font
packages maitnained by the Debian fonts team. It is quite likely that
we'll do such change for all packages under our responsibility after
the release of wheezy.

But thanks anyway for reminding this to us..:-)
