> That would break the whole point of platform-independence.
a) the PEP makes no point about platform-independence.
it is a pure Windows thing, and has no stated objective
to being platform-independent. So loss of platform-independence
may not be deliberate, but is certainly acceptable.
b) platform-independence is not lost as the launcher would continue
to support /usr/bin-based paths. So platform-independence would
be an opt-in feature, at the choice of script authors.
