    Hey, I know! This is a radical idea, but what if we put the name at the
    head of the file, and called it


    instead? Then we could teach each of i386 and x86-64 to include it from
    that area, and we could put other shared files under the same directory
    hierarchy so that it would be easy to see which ones are shared?

    Crazy idea, I know. But I think I saw somebody send out a patch kind of
    like that, so maybe this common naming scheme could be as simple as just
    applying a few patches once they got cleaned up and re-organized some
