Dear release team, please schedule binnmus to fix multiarch
coinstallability of ffmpeg.

nmu ffmpeg_7:2.7.2-1 . ANY . -m 'allow co-installs with binnmu-ed ffmpeg'

I don't know if that will cause a +b2 to be built on amd64 and mips*,
though, so:

nmu ffmpeg_7:2.7.2-1 . arm64 armel armhf hurd-any kfreebsd-any powerpc
powerpcspe ppc64 ppc64el s390x sh4 sparc64 x32 . -m 'allow co-installs
with binnmu-ed ffmpeg'
