Currently, C extensions are named something like "_helperlib.cpython-34dm.so". This doesn't take into account the bitness of the interpreter (32- vs. 64-bit), which makes it awkward to use the same working copy with two different interpreters (you have to rebuild everything each time you switch bitnesses).

Worse, under Windows it seems ABI tags aren't even used, giving generic names such as "_helperlib.pyd". Why is that?
