sys.version is incomplete in user created engine, creating problems in platform.py
I've hit a bug where I can't use the platform.python_implementation() function in code running under a user created Python engine, because sys.version is "2.7.1 ()" instead of "2.7.1 (IronPython 2.7.1 (220.127.116.11) on .NET 4.0.30319.239)",
and the platform module can't parse that.
from IronPython.Hosting import Python
CODE = """
print "Version:", sys.version
print "Implementation:", platform.python_implementation()
engine = Python.CreateEngine()
