Note: this is (sort of) related to Issue2633. (14.1.5 Process Management).

The docs for os.execvpe() say, "the env parameter must be a mapping which 
is used to define the environment variables for the new process".  It's 
not clear if this mapping replaces the existing environment, or defines 
additional entries which are added to the existing environment.  This 
should be clarified.

This applies to the spawn*() methods too.
