subversion seems specific to CPython (and in fact, to the current
development processes for CPython - if we moved to a DVCS like
Mercurial or Bazaar, sys.subversion would have to go, or at least
change meaning significantly).

dont_write_bytecode is CPython-specific, aren't they? Jython and
IronPython don't use bytecode files as far as I know.

The rest looks OK to me.
