Can you give some more details on this one, focussing on multiple
OSs/architectures: where do you keep machine dependent parts?
Furthermore, i think if you rip apart packages in shareable and arch-specific
code, packages seem to be more difficult to create, no? GNU software seems to
support that, X is a mess anyway (as Rob pointed out earlier), what else do we
have as possible targets for packages?
