What about matching other Kindles? Any suggestions for suitable patterns?
If no other ideas than prettyversion.txt will come up, this will become the Kindle model detection mechanism in KUAL (the launcher).
I'm a little concerned that it isn't future-proof, so a new firmware release might break the pattern and require rolling a new KUAL. Mumble, mumble...
It also matches the 5.3.* for the Kindle Paperwhite.
