Unittests for subprocess module has weird comment:
We cannot use os.path.realpath to canonicalize the path, since it
doesn't expand Tru64 {memb} strings.
See bug 1063571.
is link to comment,
http://bugs.python.org/issue1063571 — issue in bugtracker.

Is it still up to date? Bug has been created in 2004.
I don't see Tru64 in list of available buildbots.

Do we need to care about this platform? And how to make sure what
existing code works fine for that?
Or maybe we can drop support for Tru64 as well as we already does it
for, say, VMS?
