Maybe subprocess could take a page out of pathlib and use | (__or__) for piping.

Ugh, yes. I would follow that for consistency, though I'd love to come up with a way to clean that up too. The fact that 'decode the output' is spelled 'universal_newlines' is one of my least favourite things about subprocess.
Not me; it's one of those sekrits that ensures Python 3 porters job security. ;)
I still suspect we should be offering a simpler way to decouple the creation of the pipes from the subprocess call, but I have no idea what that API should look like, and as ugly and unintuitive as it is, the existing universal_newlines trick does address all of my *actual* use cases :P
