Or perhaps the problem is that people like me keep using lower quality
batteries simply because those are the ones included. subprocess is at that
point where it's good enough that I don't want to learn and depend on
something else, but bad enough that I don't enjoy using it. None of the
wrappers you linked to before have gained the kind of traction that
requests has for HTTP, and I'm sceptical that they ever would.

To be clear, this is *not* what I'm suggesting go into subprocess. That
would make a much bigger, more complex battery.
