Let's try to get this fixed soon.  It seems to me that the 'win32' 
platform should be understood to be the default windows builds of 
Python using VC6 (Python <2.3) or MSVC .NET (Python 2.4).  This will be 
the environment of the great majority of windows users, yes?  Evidently 
the sys module can't distinguish between these and a custom GCC Python. 
  Any ideas?
