Another difference I believe is that TerminateProcess on Windows
doesn't kill the tree of processes like kill would.  It would be nice
if Popen.terminate() did the same thing on both Unix and Windows.  (I
assume that would mean making *all* the appropriate TerminateProcess

I'm not *in*-sane. Indeed, I am so far *out* of sane that you appear a
tiny blip on the distant coast of sanity.
