Manually renaming before uploading is fine with me. Someone already did it 


This is much more clear and more consistent to the powerpc version.

the consequences in build systems are quite dire and the benefits are

the naming comes from the uname results which are used by both scons
and make (dont know for cmake), so it is imho a bit dangerous.

Now changing only  the zip name used for release can be done if
agreed, that is minor, as long as we are logical with PPC builds.
