I think it should be pushed even farther down the tree and then that
wouldn't be a problem either.  Lets say that we had a "generic Pentium+"
config, then we could source that from almost any socket, and nothing would
be included twice.  There should be no boards with two sockets, right?

I was trying, but I've had several missteps.

You can revert it or tell me to.
