Use read_command or pipe_command.
read_command returns the command's output (stdout) as a string.
pipe_command returns the Popen object; read from its .stdout member.
Call the .wait() method when you're done with it. For details of Popen
The most general function is start_command, upon which all of the
*_command functions (except for exec_command) are built. Again, this
function returns the Popen object.
Refer to the source code ($GISBASE/etc/python/grass/script/core.py)
for more details. Most of those functions are only a few lines long.
