I'm fine with closing.

I think it shouldn't be used in standard library unless some real usecase pops up - never change a running system.

Its main intend is to be a tool for easier support of extensions (pure python or not) that fail because of platform detection. Also to be able to give better debug instructions. If a user asks: "Why does xy-framework not work in Jython?" I want to be able to give advise if I suspect it's because of platform detection:

Before this, there was no easy way to do something like that; it would have involved to patch xy in some way.

That said, I'd like to write a NEWS-entry about it, so it's documented at least there.
