> If we want to support older versions of glibc a temporary (and somewhat inelegant) workaround is storing the temporaries in a list that the caller passes and destroy the list after calling `posix_spawn`.

Creating a copy seems to be a reasonable tradeoff.

Another option is to detect the bug at runtime and raise an exception if the bug is detected. But I dislike this option: I hate when a function is available in the os module but calling it raises a NotImplementedError :-( Moreover, posix_spawn() seems to be a lot of benefit, so I would like to be able to use it on "old" glibc versions.
