> 2) Modify the wrapper so that it behaves consistently on all operating systems, by special-casing this situation on Windows.

Please don't do that. In Python, we have a long tradition of trying to provide thin wrappers to OS functions: os and select modules are good example.

To abstract the OS, there are higher level modules like: os=>shutil and select=>selectors.

About the Windows issue: I don't know what is the best fix (if any). The minimum change is to document Windows's special case in Python doc.
