Its just http, I am using pylons. Right now I am doing tht with extra
parameter. But even if I get to know about the platform of the client
machine, I need to use the other properties of the corresponding machine's
os module. for example I need to use "os.path". So even if I know about the
platform name how to use that information to get os module with the property
of tht particular platform.
