Since we have `make-process' for cases like this, I don't see a need to extend
`call-process'. I'd rather we made changes like this either because (a) lots
of people want it or (b) it's blocking someone from doing something -- and not
purely from a desire for consistency. I see such changes as wholly unnecessary
at this time.
