s-c shows duplicate packages (i386 multiarch on amd64 install)

Bug Description

Since multiarch has been enabled on amd64 installs , the apt cache now shows nearly twice as many packages. This causes apt-xapian-index to index nearly twice as many packages (ie the 100% processor usage takes significantly longer than normal). As a consequence s-c shows a duplicate i386 version of the vast majority of packages. I'm unsure how deep down the stack we should fix this.

From discussion with Michael: When both a native and an i386 version of a package are available, show only the native version.
