don't follow-- list of ordered switches?

isn't this a per-package tag that simply says
+ on install/upgrade, iterate through all switches installing/upgrading package 
in each
+ on creation of a new switch, install all "global" packages


(though i agree with the other point you make about host/target packages 
needing better handling more generally, possibly particularly as 
cross-compilation becomes better supported...?)
