Perhaps not the answer you expected, but: Python uses autoconf for
feature testing. You can be certain that the API *will* vary across
system vendors. For example, FreeBSD apparently uses ng_hci(4):


If you add features, all you need to make sure that Python continues
to compile when the platform feature is not present. People using the
other systems are then free to contribute support for their platforms.
