These also appear in file names of bdist commands, right? So I think it
should be documented.

OK. I wonder how you will call fat 64-bit binaries (i.e. ppc64 and
amd64), but I can live with that semantics as long as it's documented
(I actually question that it is documented in the code. If somebody
would put "-arch Itanium" in her CFLAGS, which might be supported in
10.9, it would infer that the architecture is "fat").
