I agree. It's along the same lines as only using file extensions for
determining the filetype (and we all know how that turned out...). It
*does* have the advantage of being really fast, though.

Nevertheless, the basic bug is about changing the distfile repository
format in such a way that a single repo can contain several distfiles
built with differing build conditions. Putting metadata in the
filename is only one way of ensuring that.
