(The following point may be moot, given that Darren has now removed a
subprocess dependency... Darren -- does your code depend on it anywhere
I discovered that subprocess.py on win32 depends either on _subprocess
(a C extension) or pywin32 (another Python package). Given that we don't
want another Python package to depend on, I've taken the liberty of
adding _subprocess and hopefully enabling the right conditional build
statements for it.
However, I haven't actually been able to test my action, because I
haven't tried building it and installing it on Windows with Python <
2.4. If someone could please attempt to do this and make sure our
subprocess.py works, that would be great. The easiest way to do this
1) download MPL from svn
2) compile and install MPL with Python < 2.4
3) inside python try "import subprocess"
4) respond back to the list with your outcome
