Not tonight.  I've never used popen4 in my life, and disapprove of almost
all functions with trailing digits in their names.  Also most movies,  and
especially after "The Hidden 2".  How come nobody writes song sequels?
"Stairway to Heaven 2", say, or "Beethoven's Fifth Symphony 3"?  That's one
for Barry to ponder ...
