Similarly for mac_ver, java_ver etc.
('', ('', '', ''), '')
('', '', ('', '', ''), ('', '', ''))
Maybe it is okay if these functions are present, but can't they raise an exception or return None instead of returning these funny tuples when empty strings ?
I am surprised at Python's inconsistency in such things. For example,
>>> import winsound
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: No module named 'winsound'
Works as expected on Linux. In the same vein, these functions shouldn't be present as well IMHO - I agree this is debatable of course.
