Georg,

I just noticed that there are asterisks in a couple places in the subprocess
module documentation which don't appear to have corresponding footnotes.
All the way at the bottom are subsections called

    Replacing os.spawn*    
    Replacing os.popen*

I don't know what the '*' is supposed to mean, but in normal usage it would
tell the user there is a footnote which elaborates on something related to
that text.  I don't see any such footnotes.  Oh, wait a minute.  You
probably mean for them to be wildcards.  Hmmm...  Probably not the best
usage.  Can you find a different way to indicate that those examples refer
to a larger category of functions?
