What bothers me is that get_platform is the wrong function for this -
it is also likely that changing its behavior may break existing
extensions and build scripts (as get_platform is used to generate some
"distributions" names).

If a function to qualify an ABI on a specific platform is needed, it
should be a new function IMHO.
