> Steve: please use this simpler flag to avoid TextIOWrapper details in subprocess.py

The TextIOWrapper details are already specified in multiple places in the documentation. Should we remove all of those and write it more like:

"if *encoding*, *errors* or *universal_newlines* are specified, the streams will be opened in text mode using TextIOWrapper."

That way we make the class part of the interface, but not the interpretation of the arguments. (Currently it's a big mess of encodings and newline transformations.)
