You wouldn't have to rush anything - I was only thinking to declare
it obsolete for 1.51 (with any replacement in place).

The point of this discussion is to agree the "best practice". It
sounds like this will be telling people to use subprocess for full
control, but we may continue to provide one or two helper
functions for very common usecases.
