They may still end up in shutil. I haven't really decided which
location I like better.

However, if you (or anyone else) wants to see Python's innate
capabilities improve in this area (and they really are subpar compared
to Perl 5, for example), your best bet is to download my Shell Command
module and give me feedback on any problems you find with it via the
BitBucket issue tracker.
