Yes. This is the exit status of the command (really the return value
of system(3)). The Python interpreter prints the value of an
expression statement unless it is None -- this is done so you can use
the interpreter as an interactive calculator. The simplest way of
avoiding the printing of the value is to assign it to a dummy value.

list to it, to get them up at full speed quickly...
