I must be misunderstanding something here, because AFAIK source packages
don't really care about my *binary* arch. On the mirrors there are
'binary-amd64', 'binary-i386 directories', but only one 'source'
directory. Which also explains why this works:
$ LANG=C apt-get source python-twisted
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Picking 'twisted' as source package instead of 'python-twisted'

Based also on you previous paragraph it would mean that some binary
package built from the source 'twisted' has not been built on amd64
(yet). Let's see...
Oh, it seems the Maintainer uploaded 10.1.0-2 today and I'm unable to
find the build status for 10.1.0-1 anymore, but according to
packages.debian.org the culprits seem to be python-twisted-bin and
python-twisted-bin-dbg and indeed, they are missing from the mirror.
Thanks for the explanation, +1 informative
