If it's just additional constants then I don't see the problem. We already have a lot of platform-specific constants.

However, it would be a lot better if the io module were made to work properly with these constants, too. There are a lot of places where we hardcode tests such as `whence == SEEK_SET` or even `whence == 0`, and whence values above 2 aren't generally considered.

So the patch is probably a bit less trivial than what you imagine :)
