Yes, this is even better than my fix for #5778. Changed in r83358 to:
A string containing the version number of the Python interpreter plus additional information on the build number and compiler used. This string is displayed when the interactive interpreter is started. Do not extract version information out of it, rather, use :data:`version_info` and the functions provided by the :mod:`platform` module.
