subprocess pipes (expect-like)?

Are there any good modules out there for controlling subprocesses
through pipes? My needs (for now) are simple; I just need the
equivalent of popen2 with non-blocking reads.
In my searches, I've come across:
subproc.py: seems a bit old, but looks usable
expy : it's expect; I don't want to have to install expect
PIPE : seems nice, but requires extension module
Does anyone have any suggestions over which one to prefer over the
I know, I know, the official FAQ answer is "don't do that." Well, I
wanna. ;-) The emacs comint mode manages to do it, so there must be a
way. Basically, I want to be able to interactively control a
mathematica process, like I'm used to doing through emacs comint, only
through a python-gtk front-end instead.
