List com ports only lists the tty devices not the cu devices.

I would like the list to include /dev/cu* devices optionally.

serial.tools.list_ports.comports(devices=('cu', 'tty'))
defaulting to ('tty',)

    to which platform would that apply? OSX? posix in general?

    linux, OSX (and windows) now have dedicated port listing functions where it should not be needed to "patch" the list of names.
