Nobody is arguing against universal builds. The goal is to avoid a  
mountain of impossibly complex, difficult to maintain code in the  
Ports tree. The fact that universal is a happy land of milk and honey  
is great, but I don't think any of your points refute jberry's  
original statement:

     I'd like to see people refrain from completely bastardizing  
portfiles in order to support universal builds.

Me too.
