This can be done in the same branch, because the existing units (in the target directories) have conflicting names, and consequently must be replaced by new unit trees - something similar to the systems implementation.
I don't understand why this "consequently must be" done. The compiler only supports generating code for a single architecture, and there are no plans to change this. It would needlessly complicate the compiler source.
