so you suggest for all different profiles to just use for example x86
instead of x86-interix? i don't know... this sounds like breaking all
"if x86-interix" things, which would definitely be uncool - and there
are some of those if's for interix and winnt, that would definitely
disturb others. now i could of course fall back to `uname`, but that
would be like a journey to stone-age...
please correct me if i understood this wrong.
however i talked to haubi a while back about keywords. he for sure has
some more wise words to say :)
