oops - my bad - I can fix that.

The problem is that v2 and v3 are way too different - so regardless of
the nomenclature, you're going to need to have ifeq statements everywhere,
and I personally think that is messier then having different variables
names.  If you want, we _can_ reuse the variables since we're only including
either the v2 or the v3 .mk file, but to me that makes things more confusing
to the person porting the platform.

Geode.  Thats okay - its still in the "might not work stages".
