Currently, pythonXY.dll has a dependency on shell32.dll solely for the os.startfile (Modules/posixmodule.c) function. This is quite a heavy dependency that many would rather not have to load (e.g. lightweight server configurations).

It would be nice to delay load the DLL and fail the operation if it is not available.

(This is as much a reminder for myself as anything else, but if someone wants to do it then feel free.)
