Well, yes, but if you look at the OS section of the Trove list
you also find different implementations of BSD under the
Operating System :: POSIX :: BSD
Operating System :: POSIX :: BSD :: BSD/OS
Operating System :: POSIX :: BSD :: FreeBSD
Operating System :: POSIX :: BSD :: NetBSD
Operating System :: POSIX :: BSD :: OpenBSD
(just to take one exmaple)
See http://pypi.python.org/pypi?%3Aaction=list_classifiers for the full
Also note that Cython is listed as:
Programming Language :: Cython
even Zope is listed as programming language:
Programming Language :: Zope
so there isn't all that much consistency in the naming.
BTW: Stackless is missing from your list.
