TryChooser currently accepts the following platform targets: linux,linux64,macosx,macosx64,win32,maemo5-qt,android-r7,maemo5-gtk It seems sensible to rename "linux" and "macosx" to "linux32" and "macosx32" for parallelism with "win32", "linux64", and "macosx64". Right now, one might imagine that "linux" builds both linux32 and linux64.
I don't think we should do this. Within releng infrastructure, "linux" means linux 32-bit and "macosx" means either "ppc+i386 Universal build" or "i386 only build". We've already got other platform variations when interacting with other systems, and I don't want to introduce another one...
We already support variants/aliases in the try chooser syntax, so I think it's fine to add an alias for 'linux32' -> 'linux', etc.
there's also bug 615705 for adding 'desktop' and 'mobile' aliases, this bug can probably be handled at the same time.
