I don't care who else does want it.  It is needed to get the build dependencies
fulfilled for a distribution.  While we do have multiarch, we can't yet
build-depend on packages of arbitrary foreign architectures.  If other
distributions can handle that, fine.  But it is easier for me to provide an
openjdk for x32 than to patch around 100 packages not to use openjdk.
