Hi everyone again. I've created patch for spawn*p*, as well as for
exec*p* against trunk, so that when possible it uses crt's execvp[e]
(defined via HAVE_EXECVP, if there are other platforms that have it
they will need to define HAVE_EXECVP and HAVE_SPAWNVP). Fix is in
os.py and posixmodule.c:


Should I submit it to sourceforge as a patch, or someone can review it as is?
