Martin Panter added the comment:

Here is a patch:

* Use different return value variable names and point out that they are encoded differently
* Add another bullet point about signal handling
* Fix os.system() documentation of the return value. My understanding is it is the C standard that does not define the return value, and Posix essentially means Unix.
