don't think this works, how would python know you didn't want a file

On windows for a serial you normally suffix a colon, which would be very
nice if it worked ( it does in the windows kernel32 ) but i think you
need a library ( several avilable ) you see i think there might be setup
differencies between systems as well as addressing.
I've been thinking about a proxy server that maps a socket to a local
serial port ( terminology betrays the common heritage ) there are
commercial examples of this around. Ideally you just need the one for
your system, it sort of acts like a high level driver using socket comms
as the known bridge.
