Yeah, no real reason -- I guess popen is more “built in” than popen3  
(seeing how you do not need a require).

I think popen just merges stdout and stderr.

So use whatever you think is easiest :) I guess on the previous  
ground you could say popen3 is better, because if there is some  
warning or error printed to stderr, it won’t be intermixed with the  
resulting plist (which would lead to a parse error, even when the  
plist might have been complete, despite the text sent to stderr).
