The worst outcome of included batteries: people are always trying to push all possible batteries into stdlib. :-(
Or perhaps the problem is that people like me keep using lower quality batteries simply because those are the ones included. subprocess is at that point where it's good enough that I don't want to learn and depend on something else, but bad enough that I don't enjoy using it. None of the wrappers you linked to before have gained the kind of traction that requests has for HTTP, and I'm sceptical that they ever would.
Something like these?

To be clear, this is *not* what I'm suggesting go into subprocess. That would make a much bigger, more complex battery.
