i've written a portable serial port library. it runs now on linux and win32 
(using marks win32all) but i would like to make it compatible with more 
unix like platforms. basicaly it should run on any POSIX compilant system.

i'm interested in values for "sys.platform" and, if possible, the name of 
the serial port (an how the ports are numbered ttyS0, ttyS1 etc.)
e.g "linux2" and "/dev/ttyS%d" % port, numbering starting at zero.

the library is open source and optimized for binary communication including 
access to the control lines.
i'll post a link just after i have added the new platforms and a licence
