  I think platform.py is pretty nifty, but I'm not entirely sure how
it's expected to be used.  Perhaps Marc-Andre could explain further
the motivation behind the module?
  My biggest requirement is that it be accompanied by documentation.
The coolness factor and shared use of hackerly knowledge would
probably get *me* to put it in, but there are a lot of things about
which I'll disagree with Guido just to hear his (well-considered)
thoughts on the matter.  ;)
