Having the per-arch code to detangle the mess looks like a nice idea, thanks. That means Didier (or someone else) will have to get it to work as a first step. I'd prefer if we made the switch for all images at a single time (even if that happens through several commits), so that we only have a single documentation update. As Holger mentioned, it's going to have *some* impacts in various areas; I'd rather avoid too many steps if at all possible. (And of course: Thanks for your input.) Mraw, KiBi.
