I was looking at Python 2.4 subprocess.Popen. Quite nice and handy, but I
wonder why a "kill" method is missing. I am just adding it via subclassing,

class Popen(subprocess.Popen):
    def kill(self, signal = SIGTERM):
        os.kill(self.pid, signal)

but I would prefer to have it in the standard Popen class. I am surprised
it is not there. Any comments?
