OK, a slightly more intelligent idea in place of my previous
one. You can use win32api.ShellExecute (from the pywin32 extensions)
which is like a beefed-up os.startfile. In particular, it allows
you to pass parameters to the command. So...

import win32api
win32api.ShellExecute (
  0, # hwnd
  "open", # action; could be "print" etc.
  "winword.exe", # application
  "c:/temp/temp.txt", #params
  ".", # working directory
  1 # show/don't show
