plugin should work in chroot environments where there is no /bin/sh

Reported by: Owned by: anonymous Noah Kantrowitz normal CombineWikiPlugin normal 0.10

Description

os.system requires /bin/sh which may not be available in some chroot environments. os.spawnlp can be used instead to provide more compatibility, since it does not require /bin/sh. Also this change should result in less overhead since a shell doesn't need to be forked first before htmldoc.

All of the spawn*p functions are not available on Windows, so I can't use them. This should probably be redone with subprocess.
