OS: Windows 10
Packaging version: 19.1
Python version: Python 3.7.4 (tags/v3.7.4:e09359112e, Jul 8 2019, 20:34:20) [MSC v.1916 64 bit (AMD64)], from nuget

Issue: The ABI tag for Python 3.7 in sys_tags() does not have cp37m (just cp37):

(.venv) PS C:\Users\User\Desktop> python -c 'from packaging.tags import sys_tags; print(list(sys_tags()))'
[<cp37-cp37-win_amd64 @ 2675185733256>, <cp37-abi3-win_amd64 @ 2675185848584>, <cp37-none-win_amd64 @ 2675185852360>, <cp36-abi3-win_amd64 @ 2675185868424>, <cp35-abi3-win_amd64 @ 2675185868488>, <cp34-abi3-win_amd64 @ 2675188128520>, <cp33-abi3-win_amd64 @ 2675188128776>, <cp32-abi3-win_amd64 @ 2675188129032>, <py37-none-win_amd64 @ 2675188129544>, <py3-none-win_amd64 @ 2675188154440>, <py36-none-win_amd64 @ 2675188154696>, <py35-none-win_amd64 @ 2675188154952>, <py34-none-win_amd64 @ 2675188155208>, <py33-none-win_amd64 @ 2675188155464>, <py32-none-win_amd64 @ 2675188155720>, <py31-none-win_amd64 @ 2675188155976>, <py30-none-win_amd64 @ 2675188156232>, <cp37-none-any @ 2675188129288>, <py37-none-any @ 2675185733576>, <py3-none-any @ 2675188156680>, <py36-none-any @ 2675188156936>, <py35-none-any @ 2675188157192>, <py34-none-any @ 2675188157448>, <py33-none-any @ 2675188157704>, <py32-none-any @ 2675188157960>, <py31-none-any @ 2675188158216>, <py30-none-any @ 2675188162632>]

Expected: The ABI tag for Python 3.7 should have cp37m.

It looks like we are relying strictly on either SOABI or WITH_PYMALLOC being available here, but neither are:

(.venv) PS C:\Users\User\Desktop> python -c "from sysconfig import get_config_var as c; print(c('SOABI')); print(c('WITH_PYMALLOC'))"

Related to #180.

The culprit is the comment:

# TODO: This code is simpler compared to pep425tags as CPython 2.7 didn't seem

where I mention that I left out the fallback semantics as I couldn't find a place where they were influencing results. Looks like they were still being used. 😁

Probably need to go back through and use the fallbacks.

Comparing the tags that are produced by pip 19.2.2 and packaging.tags 19.1 on Windows 10, the ones pip has which packaging doesn't are:

  1. cp3-none-any
  2. cp37-cp37m-win_amd64

Under Debian on WSL:

  1. cp3-none-any

So that cp37m case on Windows is the one issue (the cp3-non-any has been purposefully left out as it doesn't make sense).
