They're for platform-specific modules. In most cases, the only
platform-specific modules are collections of system constants
generated by Tools/scripts/h2py.py. For an example, see the regen
script in plat-linux2. (It assumes you've set up an alias "h2py" for
the script.) I wouldn't bother unless you have an actual use in mind.
