Package: apt
Version: 1.3.1
Followup-For: Bug #839259

I just noticed this when I upgraded one host from stable. 

Until recently, Contents-{arch} wasn't fetched at all. Now, it is fetched for
every FQDN present in sources.list or in sources.list.d files. The problem is
that the change doesn't take into consideration the fact that an administrator
might have purposely split components from the same repository over many lines
for better readability and there's nothing inherently wrong with doing that.
