It is intended to be useful as a general Scientific Linux 6 optionlist, but
it is currently only used by one machine (tesla). We could create a
separate optionlist for that machine and make sl6.cfg more generic as you
suggest, but then there would be nobody using sl6.cfg and it could easily
go out of date.

In the case of the Mac OS X optionlists, we decided not to do this and to
just require that certain packages are installed. How does this differ from
that case?
