Just a separate catalog.

If the "uname -r" output was definitive for "OpenSolaris" vs "Solaris
Next", i would suggest just basing it on that. But we dont know
whether  "SunOS 5.11" is going to stay opensolaris, or whether it's
going to be solaris-next, and what the pkg makeup of that is REALLY
going to be, until it is released.
So, we'll probably need "stable", "current", and "opensolaris" separately.
