Bug#797463: M-A:same package is broken by binnmu; please do a sourceful upload

This is currently blocking the gcc5 transition from being installed on
i386-amd64 systems having ffmpeg installed - by far not an uncommon
setup. As a consequence, I can't install any system update currently.
For example, I remain vulnerable to critical security issues uncovered
in iceweasel due to this bug in ffmpeg. Please consider to fix this
situation ASAP, either by doing a binNMU on i386 (bringing the version
numbers back in sync) or by doing a sourceful upload.

On a more general note, is there any solution in sight to the issue of
binNMUs breaking MS:same packages? Really, all binNMUs issued for such
packages *must* involve all architectures, until a better solution is found.
