Is it possible to set/override the value in forth/device/tree.fs in the ppc/qemu/init.c file somehow? If so then it would be easier and we already have an is_apple() function there so this can be done only for Apple emulation. Is the init code run when the tree is already set up? What should it do to replace the name property? A assume it would call some forth code to do this but I don't know how to do this properly. Any ideas?
It is possible by simply recreating a property with the same name but a different value; however from painful experience I've spent days debugging something that was caused by a property in the default tree unexpectedly appearing in an architecture tree. If the property hadn't been present then the client would simply have faulted at that point making the culprit obvious.
So I'd be all for reducing the cross-architecture tree down to the bare minimum to avoid unexpected surprises like this.
