I wasn't suggesting any change to os.system for this script. I'm just
adding tests. I couldn't find decent examples of os.system mocking (and
stderr/out) so I did it old-school style. Mocking in Python is a mess. No
cohesive 'winning' approach/framework, and how-to information not
consolidated anywhere.

As much as I like Mockito for Java, some of those OS level things are as
ugly to mock there too -
