The problem of TerminateProcess is that I need the handle of the

I don't like the idea of rely on the private _handle and do:

  process = subprocess.Popen(...)
  subprocess.TerminateProcess(int(process._handle), -1)

so, I'll end doing this:

  process = subprocess.Popen(...)
  handle =ctypes.windll.kernel32.OpenProcess(1, False, process.pid)
  ctypes.windll.kernel32.TerminateProcess(handle, -1)

Is this ok?

Thank you!!
