[Python-ideas] Interest in seeing sh.py in the stdlib

I'm the author of sh.py, an intuitive interface for launching subprocesses
in Linux and OSX http://amoffat.github.com/sh/.  It has been maintained on
github https://github.com/amoffat/sh for about 10 months and currently has
about 25k installs, according to pythonpackages.com (
http://pythonpackages.com/package/sh, http://pythonpackages.com/package/pbs)

Andy Grover maintains the Fedora rpm for sh.py
http://arm.koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=94247  and Nick
Moffit has submitted an older version of sh.py (which was called pbs) to be
included in Debian distros

I'm interested in making sh.py more accessible to help bring Python forward
in the area of shell scripting, so I'm interested in seeing if sh would be
suitable for the standard library.  Is there any other interest in
something like this?
