 I thought about it (even started coding, but postponed the task), but I
didn't want to complicate things at the first approach.  Especially as
multiple-system support doesn't exist now and bits were already done this
way.  Feel free to improve the code -- I will look at it again when I am
writing a handler for DECstations, but I can't state exactly when, yet.

 I was thinking of the system identification problem today morning and I
believe I know how to detect a DECstation reliably.
