I'd like to move this forward, so any objections or feedback at this point would be helpful.
I would like to see a concrete proposal of what would get put in there.
A possible starting list:
- impl name (with a view to further standardising the way we check for
impl specific tests in the regression test suite)
- impl version (official place to store the implementation version,
potentially independent of the language version as it already is in PyPy)
- cache tag (replacement for imp.get_tag())
GC (reference-counting, copying, mark-and-sweep, generational, etc.)
This is a great start, Nick. Having a solid sys.implementation would (for one) help with the import machinery, as your list suggests. I'm planning on reviewing that old thread over the next few days.  In the meantime, any additional thoughts by anyone on what would go into sys.implementation would be very helpful.
p.s. is python-ideas the right place for this discussion? Also, ultimately this topic should go into a PEP, right?
