If you're running multiple concurrent commands, and you have redirected
their output streams to pipes, something needs to keep reading those pipes
if you don't want the commands to hang.
Rather than having a separate thread for each process, you could have a
single thread which manages all "background" processes using select(),
poll() or non-blocking I/O, but that's easier to do on Unix than on
Windows (Popen.communicate() uses a pair of threads on Windows).
Redirecting output to files then reading them upon completion is the
simplest solution, but you can't easily monitor progress that way (there's
no easy way to get notification when more output is written).
