I really hate script_helper API: keyword arguments are only used to pass environment variables, so the function uses hackish parameteres like __cleanenv=True...

I would prefer to pass keywords unchanged to Popen() to be able to use universal_newlines=True for example.

Since we have +10k tests, I suggest to not touch the existing API but add yet another API: a new function in support/

What do you think?
