I believe that was Brett's point. Currently other implementations have
to replace imp.get_tag() to change the magic string, whereas that kind
of info could easily be consolidated into a "sys.implementation"
struct that standardised a few things so that impls just needed to
populate the struct correctly rather than making scattered changes to
a variety of different modules.
