Yes, its confusing/. One thing that should be rationalised IMHO
is the various os modules.There are os, os.path, shutil, and now
subprocess too.

Alll doing things vaguely related to os type things. A re-org to
make them more consistent would be good, but unfortunately
would probably break lots of code!
