It is sometimes useful to call subprocess.Popen() in setup.py of
Python. Currently it would fail, because subprocess module tries to
import some modules, which not always are used. I suggest to delay some
imports.

What use cases do you have in mind?  Maybe you want to remove the half-dozen calls to os.system?
