Until an architecture that differs in more than just number of bits comes out, at which point 'os.architecture == 32' starts becoming awkward.

If Python is about readability then looking at your example, I have
two questions:
1. What is platform - hardware, CPU, OS, Python flavor?
2. What is uname()[4]?

For os.architecture I have only one question - what is the returned
value? And it is easy to remember once you get it. It is also easy to
debug.
