having a single abstraction to both
Both? What is the referent here? (I couldn't find any in the context provided.)
(but different modules under that abstraction based on os) is attractive (as Stephen pointed out).
Perhaps such an abstraction should be built on top of Ben Finney's proposed unix daemon module, rather than built in?
It seems Jesse and I have been simultaneously masticating. Having now chewed on this issue overnight, I can't see any reason why, given the existence of an implementation of the current PEP, that it couldn't be used to implement some other PEP dealing with a separate-process, service-based model.
That I can't think of any reason why not is likely to mean that there are half a dozen reasons I'm unaware of :-)
