Ken, thanks for the patch!  To be considered for Python 2.6, this patch would have to update documentation (Doc/lib) and tests (Lib/test) as well.

But more importantly:  This entire module is likely to be deprecated in Python 2.6, in favor of the subprocess module (which will gain new functions, subprocess.get_output() and subprocess.get_status_output().)  There was a long discussion about it on python-dev:

If that happens, there's no particular reason to do this, right?
