> Well, except maybe if you plan to write applications working only on Python >= 2.7.3? ... this version is not released yet.

No, of course I don't plan on writing new code that checks sys.platform == 'linux2'. That's ridiculous.

I plan to use *already written* applications on Python<2.7.3 binaries that have already been built (and thus were built on a 2.x kernel and report linux2), on Python>=2.7.3 which will be fixed to continue reporting linux2, and on Python<2.7.3 which have had the same fix backported to them by distros, since Python upstream won't do it for earlier branches.
