Well, I went looking over in the perl source I have and basically
translated the open2 perl module code into python. The only thing left was
to use the posix.read so that my read wouldn't block. (and use select
first so that I know some output is pending.)
I know some of the problems with trying to do this, but I have certain
reasons for trying. I hadn't thought of the perl FAQ but I will
check there also.
