Does anybody know of a python module which can do process management
on Windows? The sort of thing that we might usually do with
taskmgr.exe or process explorer?

For example:

* Kill a process by ID
* Find out which process ID is locking an object in the filesystem
* Find out all the IDs of a particular .exe file
* Find all the details of a currently running process (e.g. given an
ID tell me which files it uses, niceness, runtime)
