I don't understand the purpose of the 'linkage' information of platform.architecture(). Does anyone care if Python is an ELF program or a WindowsPE program? Maybe it was useful 20 years ago when there were COFF on Unix, but right now ELF is the defacto standard on Unix, and WindowsPE on Windows.

32-bit and 64-bit information should be enough, no?

I would suggest to just return ('%sbit' % bits, '') if executable is not set. Use struct.calcsize('P')*8 or sys.maxsize to get bits.
