[et-mgmt-tools] [Cobbler] Query/Recommendation regarding pxesystem.template

A quick recommendation for cobbler when an architecture is not detected 
or specified:

It currently uses /etc/cobbler/pxesystem.template when a system is added 
in using a profile with an unknown architecture.  That file is as follows:

default linux
prompt 0
timeout 1
label linux
         kernel $kernel_path
         append $append_line

Cobbler sync however adds in the "append" line automatically, so you end 
up with a dual append line.  I'm not sure if this breaks anything, but 
just for the sake of tidiness the append $append_line should be abridged 
to just "$append_line".

Can anyone see a problem with this?

Kind regards
