Don't want to bikeshed this, but let's put this in context:
Current package names:
Proposed generic architecture names:
My only concern here is that "any", "all", and "generic" are all a bit
useless out of context. In the former package names, the context is
immediately recognized. In the latter, do any of those really make
sense? The problem is "anyarch" or "genericarch" or variants are way
Damn, another patch lost to politics. :) If I had to pick from the
above, I'd go with "generic" I think because it carries the most
context with it, just like an architecture name would.
