One idea would be to factor the various issues and provide predicates for 
each one of them, like what we did with display-*-p vs window-system.  
Then we could have something like system-case-insensitive-filenames-p and 
the likes, and we could eliminate many of the system-type tests.  The 
need for introducing yet another system-type value will then become a
moot point.

But that's a substantial job, so someone will need to step forward and 
volunteer.  (I can't do it due to total lack of free time, sorry.)
