I don't have a Windows 8.1 handy, but if "ver" reports the correct version, why not have platform.win32_ver() use _syscmd_ver() in case the other APIs report "6.2.9200" and then have win32_ver() the higher version ?!

FWIW: I don't think we should add anything to the python.exe manifest to have it report the correct version. This could potentially break other APIs. AFAIK, MS just used this "trick" to prevent having existing 8.0 applications fail on 8.1 due to the minor version bump. I suppose they'll undo this with the next official Windows release.
