I would agree with leaving exec() for another day.
The only addition to the list that I would add is maybe unlink().
What does unlink() do that the existing os.remove() does not?
Posix has both a remove() and an unlink() function. The former follows
the clib definition, i.e., it causes "the file ... to be no longer
accessible by that name". This is the abstract equivalent of unlink() on
a unix system, which has stated semantics that are specific to the
various flavors of unix file system. Seems like remove() is the better
function for cross-platform support.
