I fail to see how 2. will be consistent "from the start", when we will be
calling HOST the value in $target, but anyways...

That's fine with me, as I consider that the two paths are equivalent, leading
to the same state.  It will take me quite some time to come with patches for
the second option.  Eric, do you want to wait for another week or so until I
get the new set of patches out?  Or do you want to go with the first option?
It's your take Eric, as you are the maintainer here.

Also, is there consensus that changing "host" into "target" all over the place
(of course, only where it is meaningful to change) is the right thing to do?
