Issue #10197 Rework subprocess.get[status]output to use subprocess functionality and thus to work on Windows. Patch by Nick Coghlan.

> (U) This is a breaking change for code relying on what was already a legacy interface.

CommandTests.test_getoutput() only checks that an error returns a non-zero status :-/ It doens't check for the exact status. We should use a small Python program using a specific exit code (ex: sys.exit(5)) to check the status.
