As a side-note, it is interesting to note that Python currently wrongly identifies 32-bit builds under 64-bit Linux:

Python 3.5.0a0 (default:64a54f0c87d7, Nov  2 2014, 17:18:13) 
[GCC 4.9.1] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import sys, os, sysconfig
>>> sys.maxsize
>>> os.uname()
posix.uname_result(sysname='Linux', nodename='fsol', release='3.16.0-25-generic', version='#33-Ubuntu SMP Tue Nov 4 12:06:54 UTC 2014', machine='x86_64')
>>> sysconfig.get_platform()

AFAIU, sysconfig.get_platform() (or its sibling distutils.util.get_platform()) is used for the naming of binary distributions...
