I am not most certainly not trying to merge them all back into the mess we had
before the ARCH-split.
Only the very similar ones can be merged. x86 and AMD64 were almost identical,
and you so is IA64, same tools, terminology (e.g. partitions, not slices),
partitioning plans, structure...

*bootloader*, very different on all other arches, not mergeable

*kernel*, might be worth a look, main differences are genkernel (yes|no),
kernel names & location of compiled one. The list of required kernel options
might lead to a lengthy series of code samples, though.

*disk*, partitions vs. slices, partitioning plans are all different, common
bits in those files are low-maintenance, not mergeable.

*medium*, looks like some could be merged.


Cheers,
