Regrettably, I have to disagree here. On Mac (I know that you love that platform..), we have plugins for up to 3 different architectures in the same installation directory. This isn't a problem so far, as plugin files with the same name include the code for all platforms. (lipo..)
However, as far as I know, it is impossible to merge the plugin cache of 3 architectures in a single file, so for me, it is absolutely necessary to keep the arch's name in the plugin cache's name, at least in a #ifdef __APPLE__ or something.

Best regards,
