Massively too late. We've been using this versioned-machine
scheme for over a decade, and the upheaval of changing the
way it works now would be rather out of proportion purely to
tidy up the list of machines in the help output...

Well it's more than just tidy up the list, as not adding identical machines would have saved maintenance of adding these, lines of code in code base that do nothing just making it harder to read and also would be easier for users but these benefits are maybe less than the effort to change it now so then it's too late (not because how long it's been done this way but how much effort would be to change for how much benefit). I'm OK with that, was just wondering so asked it to clarify.
