A revised proposal...

Still called "jdk.release".
But if people really think "" sounds ok, at least the  
names are unique and won't conflict.

A Linux 64bit build should result in a jdk.release file that looks  
something like: = Linux
jdk.os.version = 2.6
jdk.os.arch = amd64 = 1.7.0
jdk.vm.cfg.files = jre/lib/amd64/jvm.cfg
