If this is a contest i definitely vote for a os='' and arch='' tag in
nodes (<package, <install|upgrade|remove, ...).

I'm not a WSH programmer (i'm not a programmer at all ;), but seems to
me that can be easily implemented without disrupt all the WPKG code (a
simple condition before loading the node...).

I think that the source of check could be some environment variable
(%WPKG_OS% and %WPKG_ARCH%?) that can be calculated on pre-script,
without adding to WPKG code the 'os detection' code that can clearly be
a mess.

If variables are not defined, simply mean 'all'.
