PR 22715 is accurate for the current implementation of subprocess. There has been discussion in past issues about implementing a PATH search that's similar to what the CMD shell does -- as in calling os.system() or Popen() with shell=True -- instead of relying on the search that WinAPI CreateProcessW implements. The resolved path would be passed as the `executable` argument, which becomes the lpApplicationName argument of CreateProcessW.
