if you want to stop contributions to Python's standard library unless they use your tools, you have a serious problem.
Sorry if you misunderstood me, I didn't want to stop this contribution. Here is what I wrote, again:
I would suggest to replace the _subprocess extension module by a Python implementation based on ctypes (and include ctypes in 2.4, at least for Windows).
if you're suggesting a rewrite for political reasons, you're effectively blocking this contribution. don't do that; python-dev have enough problems getting non- core contributions as it is.
