In Debian/Ubuntu I have seen some third party extensions (not built with
distutils) that still use this naming convention in their Python 3 extension
module, but it's usually pretty easy to rename them to PEP 3149 style names in
the platform build scripts.  I think it's a great idea to eventually get rid
of the untagged names altogether, and saving some stat calls is added benefit.
