Please consider unblocking planned upload of package mate-terminal.

This upload fixes how mate-terminal is used as xterm
(x-terminal-emulator) alternative:

  * debian/control:
    + Make mate-terminal "Multi-Arch: foreign". (Closes: #774182).

-> On amd64 platforms, the above fix allows mate-terminal to be
co-installed with applications that are available for i386 only and that
depend on x-terminal emulator.

  * debian/mate-terminal.{postinst,prerm):
    + Use mate-terminal.wrapper (instead of mater-terminal binary directly) as
      alternative for x-terminal-emulator. (Closes: #773431).

-> Before this upload we erroneously used the mate-terminal executable
directly as xterm alternative. However, mate-terminal directly does not
provide the correct set of cmdline options. The mate-terminal.wrapper
script has been written for this purpose specifically and we should have
used it in the first place, but did not...
