New submission from Brian Curtin <brian at python.org>:

Attached is a patch that adds documentation for a few things that have existed in subprocess for a while without documentation.

The "startupinfo" parameter takes subprocess.STARTUPINFO object which takes a few different options for its attributes, but none of this was documented.

The "creationflags" parameter takes subprocess.CREATE_NEW_WINDOW or subprocess.CREATE_NEW_PROCESS_GROUP, but neither were documented as options or what the options mean.
