os.popen() is certainly deprecated. Its documentation in both 2.6 and 2.7 notes:

  Deprecated since version 2.6: This function is obsolete. Use the subprocess module.

Indeed, the Python 3.x library/os.rst doc mentions it several times, but the documentation was removed. I don't think this is following the rules of deprecation.

If it was decided to keep os.popen alive, it *should* be documented in 3.x, possibly retaining the deprecation notice.
