We probably can redirect output from tools to a file and then dump
the file content when tool exists. This might remove some of the os.popen
complexity. However, last time I looked at APR's pipes code, most of
complexity was for Win95, so I might be wrong. I don't even know if Win95 has
the 'dup2' function :-(
