I just noticed that sys.platform in 1.6a2 (and the latest CVS from this morning) returns "linux2" on my PC, not "linux-i386". As I recall this decision is made in the configure script. Does anyone know why it changed? This is not the end of the world, but the OS name alone is not really enough on a multi-architecture OS...
...back to calling os.uname() myself, I guess. ;-(
