As an addendum, the reason I suggested this as one option is that it
allows push of the data. The other method, of course, is to define a
way to return this info via disco, and then the win32 one could
include a 'win32' ext, or the Flash-based web one could include 'web'
as an ext... but that doesn't allow for a display version (220.127.116.11)
as opposed to, say, a definition version (0.4) or whatever.
I'm not married to either option, as both allow proper caching of the
OS info (which is the more immediately useful bit of information IF a
client chooses to export that info).
