In Python 2.5 they have been added to the os module, but for now I think 
you are probably expected to just continue using posixfile or define 
them yourself.

If you did define them yourself, maybe this would be best, given the 
current situation:

import os
except AttributeError:
     os.SEEK_SET, os.SEEK_CUR, os.SEEK_END = range(3)
