I cant see Windows or MacOS (amongst others) on the platform list.

Python does a very nice job of modules to be honest. I dont know how it
works either. Definitely worth some examination. Its definitely nice just
unzipping a directory structure and modules. This is what I have working
with "Rio". I will zip it up and make it available tonight. Its not rocket
science, tried to keep everything simple, only win32 currently.
