Thanks a lot to all of you who cared to answer! Eventually it was
"::CreateProcess", and it works!

But here is another question for gurus: sometimes my script fails, and
I cannot figure out why. OK, I can - especially since I terminate it
with "sys.exit()", but I want my app to know too.
"GetLastError" returns 0 - for the obvious reason that this is the
value Python interpreter returns with. But how can I get the script
return value?
