just to clarify its not any issue in python, python is working fine with .so
The issue is just that theses variables tends to be used by other applications to figure out information on the system (like shared library extension, see numpy.distutils)
You certainly could argue that these applications are broken by even needing this information, but a proper naming of the variables could help reduce confusion and wrong code.
