So, from what I can see, historically the SO extension was taken from, see [1] lines 24 and 60. Then, the CCompiler class got overhauled, and the value was hardcoded to ".so", see [2], but the "compiler.shared_lib_extension = SO" statement remained, presumably oversight. So technically, this is also affecting python 2.x, though in that case it does not make any difference, since python2 does not use versioned so-names for binary modules.
