Heh. I am *so* lost right now. I don't know who said what anymore..

I know, but personally i don't see it as being that much of a big

The only tags that an implementation should just append is <execute>,
<make> and <configure>. Those are the _only_ tags, afiak. So, do we
make an exeception in this regard? Or just use <parameter>?
Id prefer to just use <option> and make sure we are clear on it's proper
usage then mixing up <parameter> and <option>. I just really like
<option> over <parameter>, that's all.
Dunno.. hopefully you will all reply agreeing with me and making my
simple... [ya right! ;)]

Well, i'm fresh out of ideas then ;)

How about that then?
So you can still do like;
<target>bin sbin usr</target>
Dunno.. <target> or <name>, hrm. None are really that great you start
adding multiple target directories inside there entries.

Then? I was leaning towards <target> for a while, then I switched to
<name> now i'm unsure if it's really that applicable for either really.
Like if they are suppose to list multliple directory targets...
Id prefer to use either <target /> or <name /> over all, to be
consistent with all other tags. So this would affect like <move />,
<copy />, <link />, etc.
