And if you're running a 32-bit python on 64-bit Windows you almost certainly want to download 64-bit libraries, right?
Actually, that one's a bit harder to work out. I'd say uname() would say that it's a 64-bit system (of whatever architecture), so all you have is the platform module and its methods of looking at sys.executable - and the docs comments kinda scare me off using that anywhere other than Linux (and even there, it looks inefficient). Is there a best-practice way of finding out what binary libraries you should be using for this process? Surely that should be a simple thing?
