I do not think this is ready to live in the standard library.  

I've left some comments on your patch review.  Consider those for incorporation into the psutils project.

wait_procs() implementation should live in the psutils module on PyPI with more iteration on its implementation happening there as it isn't ready yet.

In general: We have too many APIs in the subprocess module.  I want to avoid adding more unless they are a very clear improvement to ease of use of the module.  More things with deadlock caveats similar to the existing Popen.wait() call are undesirable.
