Hi Vernon,
A little of both, actually - we have a copy of the Python stdlib, and
there are some modifications to it, but the goal is to stay as close
as possible to the CPython stdlib.

If you supply a patch upstream, I'll apply it to our copy because it
affects us more than CPython, and it likely won't make production
until 3.3.

I wouldn't worry about trying to determine if elevation is required -
just 'write access denied' should be enough.

- Jeff
