Martin Panter added the comment:

I think it might be better to leave the platform-specific details in the full 
Popen description, not under Frequently Used Arguments. I suggest to use 
20344_4.patch:

* Move existing pointer to Popen constructor details up to top of section
* Explain the escaping and quoting of a sequence only applies to Windows
* Remove claim that a string simply names a program without arguments; appears 
to be only half true under Windows
* Clarify shell=True command is normally a string, not a sequence
* Drop new description of Unix shell argument sequence in favour of existing 
description under Popen
* Move warning about Windows shell argument sequence under Popen
