In the docs for getpass:
http://docs.python.org/release/2.6.6/library/getpass.html (as an example).

It hints that getuser() doesn't work on OSX. I tried this out and it works fine for python 2.6 on 10.6.

I have included a patch for this. I believe the cleanest way to handle this is to remove the "Availability" entry as it's no longer necessary.
