I like the idea and I'm proposing to add two more methods to subprocess

class Popen(...):
    def signal(self, signal):
        """Send a signal to the process (UNIX only)

        signal is constant from the signal module

    def terminate(self, force=False):
        """Terminate the process

        On UNIX terminate(False) is equivalent to signal(SIGTERM) and
        terminate(True) to signal(SIGKILL).

        On Windows ... (does Windows support a forced terminate?)
