I don't know - but I'll ask Steve who packaged the partner version if
he knows. Ultimately, I think you'd need two packages - one skype
package that is arch-independent so that you always end up with a
'skype' package installed, and a skype-bin which installs the i386
binaries, and I think you can only hide the two packages from the user
by either using a repository (where one pkg depends on the other), or
doing something ugly like the first package downloading and installing
the second.
