FWIW, I've given Peter some feedback, but in general I think this code
is ready for inclusion into 2.4. I hope it's not too late. (My
recommendation on the call/callv issue is to get rid of callv(), and
instead let call() interpret multiple string args as such; a single
string arg will be interpreted as a whole command line, per Popen();
if you want a single file arg you have to enclose it in [...].)
