May I make a non-trivial request of the to-be-assigned project admin?

There are a few things which can be done to make scripts truly 
cross-platform. The main things that spring to mind have to do with 
os.sep and the like to determine the proper OS separator for building 
paths, etc.

Can a few simple guidelines be established which a script must adhere 
to in order to be "standard fare?" For the most part, it should be 
truly cross-platform. If this isn't a requirement, then I'll bug you 
for a "platform" meta comment so that folks know right off the bat when 
they load a script that it is doomed not to work.

I do think that a simple (ha) "this has no platform-specific code" 
would be an important part of a script being included for distribution.
