Yeah, I wasn't really trying to push for everyone doing this right
now... I just meant, if people wanted finer granularity, that might be
what I advocate for. I don't think I've ever seriously wanted this; I
don't think it makes sense to try and reason about a solution for it
unless there's a specific motivator, since we don't know if a solution
is "good enough".

In my personal experience in the past, all I've ever used @sys for on
linux platforms is dividing between "linux and everything else" or
(rarely) "linux and ancient linux".
