I want to use `os.startfile` to open a folder in Explorer/Nautilus/Finder. The documentation says that it's only implemented on Windows:

http://docs.python.org/dev/library/os.html#os.startfile

See discussion on Python-ideas here:

Is there a good reason why `os.startfile` is implemented only on Windows?
