Right, I know you need both OS and Arch, but do you really need
to distinguish the number of bits in both places? Why not:

OS                  Arch

Solaris             SPARCv9
Solaris             SPARCv9-32
Solaris             SPARCv9-64
Linux               SPARCv9-32

(But I'm only asking out of curiosity.)
