> Maintaining the necessary logic Python is not really possible in the stdlib. It's better to have a PyPI module for this which can be updated much more easily.

The /etc/os-release syntax is stable, the file is implemented nearly everywhere and is unlikely to change, so I don't see why it'll be difficult to maintain. Just parse and give us the key/value pairs, please!

It's disappointing to have to add Yet Another Dependency to get this functionality, contrary to Python's "batteries included" philosophy.
