Then maybe, for now, the proper thing to do is to branch the profile and 
produce different versions for different architectures (until such time 
as conditional execution alleviates the need for this). Since the 
arch-specific changes will be so minor, it will not be much of a burden 
to keep them up to date (just an "svn merge" each time the x86 branch is 

If someone can document the things that need to be different for the 
non-x86 arch profiles (or even volunteer to maintain them), I'll branch 
them off as soon as I finish up converting the textdump config files 
over to the new skeleton structure.
