[New-bugs-announce] [issue12046] Windows build identification incomplete

New submission from Martin v. Löwis <martin at v.loewis.de>:

The Unix build identifies itself with a string such as

Python 3.2.1b1 (3.2:5b34f84ca773, May 10 2011, 00:58:43)

and sys._mercurial then is ('CPython', '3.2', '5b34f84ca773')

In the Windows build, the identification is

Python 3.2.1b1 (default, May 10 2011, 00:33:43) [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)] on win32

and sys._mercurial is ('CPython', '', '')

Not sure whether this is a release blocker, but it's definitely a step backwards from 3.2.0.
