Yes i believe it works so too as Mark says.

@BR make sure that for your next release, that when now your highest 
versioncode is 15 for x86-64

the armv7a starts with 16

that's why i showed you the sequence as example.

you need to increase the versioncodes but with the lowest versioncode 
for the lowest architecture, i did it too and had no problem

so like this for your sequence if your highest used VC is 15 then:

Build                    VC

arm v7a                16 ---->next time --->20---->next time--->24

arm64                    17---->next time--->21--->next time--->25

X86                        18--->next time--->22--->next time--->26

x86-64                  19--->next time--->23--->next time--->27

and so on, you see the 64 builds need to be higher vc then the 32bits
