Terry J. Reedy added the comment:

I agree with David about not adding the note. Simplify "This module intends to replace several other, older modules and functions, such as:" to "This module replaces several older modules and functions:".

The 2.7 list has 'popen*', which would include 'popen', which exists in 3.x but is not in the 3.x list. The 2.7 docs mark 'popen' as deprecated and replaced by subprocess, the same as for popen2,3,4. The 3.3 docs no longer mark popen as deprecated. Did it become undeprecated? Should the 2.7 'popen*' be changed to 'popen[2-4]'?
