On the other hand in some ways Jython is sort of like Python on a weird virtual OS that lets the real OS bleed through some. This may still need to be checked in that way (there's are still checks of <if os.name == 'nt'> right?)
Yeah, but that all ooooold code ;)
Hmm, what do you mean? `os.name == 'nt'` is still the proper way to test that we're running on a Windows system (more accurately, over the Windows API).
It has been used incorrectly in a few places in the Python standard library - Windows support code that would work correctly on IronPython is skipped because os.name is *not* 'nt' on IronPython. That was the case in the past anyway. It's quite some time since I've used IronPython now.
