How so? I don't know of any Linux or Unix spec which says so. If you get
the Linux heads to standardize this then I'll certainly be very happy
(and countless others will, too). But AFAIK this it not the case and I
don't see why you are asking Python to make a choice that OS vendors
refuse to make. You are certainly asking the wrong project to solve this
problem. So I'd rather not solve your problem at the Python level so
that you instead try to get it solved at the right (OS) level.
