I don't know how to do that. I'll ask, but I would guess the answer is
no at this point due to the newness of armhf in Ubuntu.
Pushing the source packages and having armhf build them in the archive
isn't a problem, it just means that for a few days you might find that
some packages are "held" back until all the packages that satisfy
"breaks" and "depends" clauses are available. Using the PPA merely
shortens the window of time in which people find packages held back.
