It is not complicated. But it can be even less complicated by
not having to specify `uname -p`. After reviewing the old
discussion I can't see a particular reason to not include
wget to a generic version.

It really boils down to beauty vs. ease-of-use. Beauty is
of course nice to look at, but it is not a virtue of its own.
