I wish define:s would say what they are about.

It's never too late to start documenting them (or change their names
to something self-explanatory, for that matter, if it's possible).

This case may be simple, but what does subprocesses (for exampe) mean?

It currently means !MSDOS.
IMO we should just get rid of it and replace it with !MSDOS in order to 
simplify the code.
The probability that there would be a need to port the current emacs to
an OS that does not have subprocess support is very close to zero (or zero).

How about all these new tablets? It isn't unreasonable to have Emacs there, but do they actually have subprocesses capability like exec:ing grep or make?
