[wpkg-users] Now that we have WPKG 1.3.1... more ''standard'' variable definition?

Hi Marco,
  I agree with you, many of us will already use %PROGFILES% defined by x86 or x64.  The desktop would also be useful.

Ok, now we have WPKG 1.3.1, that have the nice feature of be able to define variables in config.xml.

We are used to use in recipe variable like %SOFTWARE%, and we know that is merely a convention, but is a useful convention in wiki recipes.

Can be define some more ''convention''? On config.xml examples there's two examples:

	<variable name="DESKTOP" value="%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Desktop" os="windows xp" />
	<variable name="DESKTOP" value="%PUBLIC%\Desktop" os="windows 7" />

%DESKTOP% is a possibly confusing variable... better to use %ALLUSERSDESKTOP% or %PUBLICDESKTOP%?
Someone have just maked some more pecise os detection? AFAIK %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Desktop is for XP an before, while %PUBLIC%\Desktop work for vista and successor. I don't know for server OSes...

	<variable name="PROG_FILES32" value="%PROGRAMFILES%\SomeSoftware" architecture="x86" />
	<variable name="PROG_FILES32" value="%PROGRAMFILES(x86)%\SomeSoftware" architecture="x64" />

This is clearly an example. I propose:

	<variable name="ProgramFiles32" value="%ProgramFiles%" architecture="x86" />
	<variable name="ProgramFiles32" value="%ProgramFiles(x86)%" architecture="x64" />
