Yeah, but the deprecation rules require that the commands module has
to stay around for at least one release; the quickest we can go is to
deprecate it in 2.6 and remove it in 2.7. However, it would be fine to
reimplement it in 2.6 using calls to subprocess.

Anyway, don't sweat it. Either way will be fine.
