output of sys.platform changed


I have a python application which relies on the sys.platform output.

I noticed that on GNU/Hurd, the output of sys.paltform has changed from
gnukfreebsd5 to gnukfreebsd6.

Is this intentional ?
How are the numbers calculated ?
Is there something else I should check for to find out if the platform is a
GNU/Hurd box ?
