In fairness to Jython implementers past - it wasn't a mistake but a
deliberate design choice at the time since in the old days we where
going for the now defunct "100% Java" thing (does anyone remember
that?) so this is more of "the design has evolved such that Jython's
os.name now feels incorrect".

I'll stop having conversations with myself in public now, sorry :)
