I wouldn't be too worried about this '64' bit issue.

Hypothetically, C library extensions can/could be different between 32 and
64 bit
versions. Maybe issues might arise sometime.

My original point was only that 'win32' constant from the stdlib sys module
is an 
inaccurate constant to describe windows now. The stdlib platform module
'Windows' and that seems better.
