It's not just "config tricks and ugly hacks", it also violates the
assumption that target names are unique.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean (or rather, how it would help
the tinderbox).  What *would* help would be an easy way to determine,
*before* trying to build it, whether a specific kernel config is
appropriate for a specific target.  Can you think of an easier way to do
this than to scan the config for the "machine" line?
