As noted in http://bugs.python.org/issue1311 (referenced from http://bugs.python.org/issue20541) it's not actually correct to assume that os.path.exists(os.devnull) returns true, as on Windows the "null device" is not a proper filesystem object.

So I'd suggest that the code here needs to avoid relying on this assumption.
