This isn't of much help on multi-arched architectures (such as
Fedora/RHEL x86_64 systems), because any such default would only match
to one of its supported architectures and be wrong on all others.
I disagree with your argument. config.site can be a full-powered shell
OK, then it should be technically possible to implement this - Whether
it's useful is a different matters (IMO it's not).
