Everyone missed my other argument in favour of alternate constructor
methods: fixing the currently wrong default arguments.

There is no good reason to break working code when beginner confusion can
be better addressed by telling them to avoid calling the Popen constructor
directly in favour of newer APIs that have benefitted from years of
experience with the current API.
