Since the only x86 distinctions we're currently making are between 386 and
everything else (where "everything else" becomes 486)[*], we may want to
consider renaming the directories. Or, if arch-specific optimizations make
a difference, have directories for each of the x86's, and generate baselines
per architecture. (That would get complicated, but so is the real world.)

I would therefore like to posit that computing's central challenge, viz. "How
not to make a mess of it," has /not/ been met.
