Unfortunately no :(  But I am quite confident the existing popen code can be
implemented in Python with win32all.

Not sure what you exactly want here, but overlapped IO is fully supported.

In general, it is probably best if these questions go to a different list -
either comp.lang.python or python-win32@python.org - not very Aussie
specific ;)
