Martin v. Löwis <martin at v.loewis.de> added the comment:

I think it's fairly clear what should be considered executable in this context: anything that subprocess.Popen is able to launch (because if is_executable succeeds, this is what will happen to the file). This excludes word files, and also excludes files ending in .cgi; only files ending in .exe are executable.
