The 'os.stat' method on windows seems to be hardcoded to check the file name extension when computing the 'executable permission flag' (st_mode).

(See Modules/posixmodule.c:  win32_stat and win32_wstat)

Currently, it checks for : 
 '.bat', '.cmd', '.exe', '.com'

As dynamic libraries also must be executable on window, t should also check for : 
 '.dll'

It would be even better if the actual 'read and execute' permission is returned.
