If you use subprocess.call(), the return value is the return code of
the child process.
If you use subprocess.Popen(), the .wait() method returns the child
process' return code, which can also be retrieved from the .returncode
attribute of the Popen object.
Typically, a return code of zero indicates success while a non-zero
value indicates failure. On Unix, a negative value indicates that the
process terminated due to a signal.
Neither call() nor Popen() raise an exception if the spawned program
"fails" in some sense, only if they are unable to execute the program,
query its status, etc.
