Subject: [PREFIX] profiles arch subs?
Date: Tue, 19 May 2009 12:49:38 +0200
Hi all,

While cleaning up the Darwin and Solaris profiles, I noticed that there
is some redundancy in masks (necessary) due to the structure based on
single inheritance:


Most e.g. masks in the ppc dirs are specific for the CPU, and not really
bound to the OS release.  So I propose the following structure:

<os>/<release>/<arch> (inherits from .. and ../../<arch>)

This way a single mask can e.g. apply to all PPC versions of Mac OS X.
Similar for Solaris' sparc, sparc64, x86 and x64.

Does this make sense, or am I missing something obvious?  Better ideas?

(note that I (hopefully) kept full backwards compatability with this scheme)
