[issue2854] Add gestalt back into Python 3.0

New submission from Brett Cannon <brett at python.org>:

gestalt was removed as part of the stdlib cleanup for Mac code. But it 
turns out that gestalt is one of those modules that is just needed. Either 
the original version needs to be added back in or a ctypes version needs 
to be implemented. Either way, something to get system info needs to be 
added back into the stdlib (and probably go into plat-darwin).
