No, you can't use the users shell from the pwd module.  That can be
any crazy program.  Not a functional /bin/sh for use in making
commands when shell=True in subprocess which is where this feature
request came from.

*system* default, not the user's.  subprocess MUST use /bin/sh or
equivalent, ignoring any per-user setting.
