hi all 

let me drop my two cents here: i would like to emphasize IOhannes' point
here, since i have been a few times in a situation with a group of
people using different platforms, where a naming convention respecting
platform and architecture would have been helpful. i mean, there is a
real practical use in finding such a convention, whereas there seem to
be only theoretical reasons for keeping the existing suffixes.
