Comment(by annakrat):

 Replying to [comment:14 zarch]:
 > If the meaning of this function is just a python replacement for the
 equivalent "which" bash command. The implementation using Popen, it does
 not provide any information about where the program is, therefore is
 conceptually different from "which", and personally I find much more clean
 ask only for the program, instead of asking for the program AND one

 The 'which' implementation of function find_program more suits to the
 name. But in this case we probably want to only test if we can run it (and
 we don't want to find it).

 Is there a way to get rid of the dummy parameters (like 'help') and keep
 the interface clean while keeping the previous implementation?
