This was discussed in issue 6760.  There I advocated (and still advocate) option (3).  Unfortunately it looks like our doc update in that issue actually *lost* the documentation for your option (2) that used to be there, though it wasn't exactly clear what it meant when it was there.

So IMO we should do a doc update to add that info back in a clearer form, and also do a deprecation cycle to disallow shell=True with a sequence.  I haven't ever gotten consensus from the other devs on the latter, though.
