I think this is a bug: The doc says "Availability: UNIX." but it is *available* under Windows and gives an unexpected error message.

I see several way to fix this:
1) Fix the doc: "Supported only on UNIX. Behavior on other platforms is undefined."
2) Make subprocess.getstatusoutput (and subprocess.getoutput) unavailable on non-supported platforms. (Same behavior as the 'os' module.) 
3) Make these convenience functions multiplatform using subprocess.Popen.

I think the best thing to do is #3. What do you think?
