When I asked for this I was imagening (wrongly) way more to go in
setup.cfg then just the meta-data.  To be honest in that case I don't
think I've got a use for os.uname() to be available.  While nothing is
wrong with having it, if no one else thinks they need it maybe it's
unnecessary complication?
