Here's an alternative to backing out the change, and it's simpler than I expected when I said it would be too much for 3.5.0.

We add an 'arguments' parameter to os.startfile and use that instead of The underlying ShellExecute call does not do any argument processing, so you can pass through any arguments you like.

In the attached patch, I only added the argument for when Unicode strings are used, since byte strings are deprecated, but it's fairly trivial to add it to both. I'll add a backout patch next so they can be compared.
