With regard to the argumet to set dissassembly-flavour commands,
is there anything generic in either BFD or opcodes that can be used to
determine the names?

The argument to ``set architecture'' is determined by BFD.  If an
equivalent is available for this register/opcode stuff then I think
there would be a greater chance of consistency between the different

Also are the functions:

available in a header file (Nick?).  That would indicate an ongoing
committment, on the part of the opcode maintainers, to support these
