As mentioned in the original request, there are at least two motivations for "which" functionality that are distinct from running the program (these days, with the subprocess module).  #1 was detecting existence of a program.  #2 was finding the *second* instance of a program on the path.

After 9 years, I'm certainly not holding my breath...
