I'll bite, even if I'm just a interested party. The + kind of looks ugly
to me. In your initial mail ("Patch for kernel variants/flavors") you wrote
Come on... "+" instead of "-" or "." and it suddenly looks
ugly to you?
Actually, I kind of like it, because it springs right into your eyes :)
IMHO, adding ".general" or ".default" actually has the potential for
breakage than changing "." into "+".
