Since this is an OS level interface, it should either go into
the os module or, if it doesn't rely on a C API, into the platform
module (see e.g. the platform.win32_ver() and .mac_ver() APIs
as example).

I don't think the sys module is the right place to put the API,
since it doesn't have anything to do with the Python system
