Without knowing this issue existed, I recently started working on adding some convenience APIs for shell invocation to shutil: http://bugs.python.org/issue13238

I think the getstatus and getstatusoutput APIs were copied from the commands module in 3.0 without sufficient thought being given to whether or not they fit with the design principles of the subprocess module. IMO, both should be deprecated:
   - they're not cross-platform
   - they invoke the shell implicitly, which subprocess promises never to do
