New submission from Sridhar Ratnakumar <sridharr at activestate.com>:

Currently there is no way to get the default scheme for *current* platform other than plainly *assuming* that that is os.name unless it is posix, in which case it becomes posix_prefix. 

PyPM needs to know this. But I am slightly reluctant to hardcode it. I would rather use the _get_default_scheme() .. but only if it is known to be maintained for backward compat.
