Looking at the thread you reference, I guess it would be
nice if the desktop module supported returning a process handle.

On Windows, I imagine os.startfile could be extended in
Python 2.5 to use StartFileEx() (win32 function suggested by
Thomas Heller) and return a process handle.  I guess it's
worth asking whether that's actually very useful without
ctypes or win32all, though.

Anybody know how you'd get a pid out of KDE or GNOME?
