Just on compatibility then just to say that the `release` file is a 
supported interface. So changing the value of OS_NAME ("Darwin" -> 
"macos" and "SunOS" -> "solaris") might mean that scripts or tools that 
read it will need to be updated. Mandy will get this change documented 
in the release notes and I wouldn't expect updating scripts to deal with 
additional or new values should be a major issue.
