I think Anton was saying that it's worse to package binary debian
packages, not debian packages as a whole. We create source packages
which can be uploaded to (for example) launchpad PPAs, and built
(compiled) for multiple architectures including i386, AMD64, LPIA and
ARM. If you build binary packages then the onus is on you to rebuild
for other architectures.
