Os.uname() does have a usability issue: the various values don't have
a clear meaning, nor even a clear mapping to "marketing" numbers.
* os_sysname is "darwin" on a macosx machine, not something that would
be clear to a novice OSX developer
* os_release is not necessarily the same as the version of the OS but
returns the version of the kernel. Examples of operating systems where
the kernel version number and OS version number aren't the same:
Solaris, MacOSX, and of course Linux
os_nodename shouldn't be used in setup.cfg at all, I don't see a good
reason to include the hostname in check conditions in setup.cfg.
There's always the full setup.py if you want complicated conditions.
