hm. i'm afraid this won't work too good with regards to virtual
selection, etc, where one possible selection for a virtual would work,
but the _frist_ one in the list (which is selected by portage if all are
equal) doesn't work. i could list a few of those at least for interix,
winnt, hpux, aix, .... so that one won't work. most "|| ( )" would
break ... and i don't think it would be an option to change the ordering
of such || lists. (wow - reading this again i get knots in my brain...
do _you_ understand what i mean? :) )
