Comments about the text of a PEP should be directed to the PEP author, 
whose is the one who would edit it.

The definitive documentation of the subprocess module is, as usual, its 
section in the Library manual, as well as the docstring.  Those two 
should be in sync.  PEPs are design and development documents and are 
usually not revised once approved and implemented.
