[Python-Dev] "Deprecation" of os.system in favor of subprocess?


My take on this is that os.system() is there because it's part
of the C stdlib, and Python generally aims to provide wrappers
for all of the C stdlib facilities. It's not Python's place to
start making value judgements about which things are worthy of
being wrapped and which aren't.
