I'm fairly sure the answer's no. It wouldn't be beyond
the wit of man to produce a library with conditional
imports or checks against the sys.platform etc. which
did sensible things. If you Google the archives for this
group you'll see similar questions a few times in the
past, so maybe there are some starting points for you
there. (On Win32 I'd use WMI, but that's just because...)
