where we left the matter previously:

a quark file can list a series of pre-compiled binary URLs, separated
by architechture.

curl can be invoked to grab the plugin and install it.

the complexity is in naming the architectures by a unique symbol.  IMO
it can be informal.

each individual's SC lang app has to be able to identify itself with
that symbol ( eg. 'Intel OS X' or 'Universal OS X' )
that could be done by a primitive, and could be a useful function for
many other purposes besides quarks.

Hey Felix,

It's late and I'm probably being dumb, but won't thisProcess.platform do the job?

Also since plugins are small, and since the server just ignores plugins from other platforms based on extension, why not just download all of them? If OSX plugin quarks were simply required to be Universal, this should work.
