speeding up Python when using wmi

Here's a quick and dirty version of winver.exe written in Python:
It uses wmi to get OS information from Windows... it works well, but
it's slow... too slow. Is there any way to speed up wmi?
In the past, I used the platform and sys modules to do some of what
winver.exe does and they were rather fast. However, since switching to
wmi (for a more accurate representation) thinngs have gotten slow...
I suppose this could be a wmi only issue not related at all to Python.
Any tips or ideas?
