make python launcher use os.execvp() instead of subprocess.Popen()

This fixes a bug where casperjs' python launcher process won't pass along kill
signals to the phantomjs subprocess. This patch works by using an exec system
call which causes the phantomjs subprocess to completely replace the casperjs
parent process (while maintaining the same pid). This patch also has the added
benefit of saving 10 megs or so of memory.
