Not at present.  This has been discussed in the past and rejected,
because it would generally pollute the namespace of the top of the

If you would like to propose a means by which the necessary
specifications for *all* relevant distros can coexist (eg, but not
necessarily restricted to, ./etc/distros/DISTRO.tar.gz for each
