Actually, I had a thought. Why should we make this explicit, when we
could take an implicit approach and identify the target's architecture
with 'remote-eval'? Ideally, we'll be probing the machines anyway to
implement safety checks on the <operating-system> declaration, so why
not just add this to our list of pre-deployment tests?
