Good, that was my hunch too.

No no, I expressed my self a bit unclear (and only added invisble
parentheses to my sentence). What I tried to say is that I hope that
we get exactly this very simple very clean solution with exactly 2
variants (one for arch:any and one for arch:all), and not a different
solution with a myriad of options and conditions. So if the above is
your aim I'm very happy :)
