Hm.  I guess I was thinking that this isn't re-inventing shell parsing
so much as using the shell for parsing; if we were reimplementing even
a subset of shell parsing I'd maybe agree with you, but I don't think
that's the case.  And really, we're doing the same thing system() is
doing; I don't think it is unreasonable to expect a moreproc of "less
-aics" to work.  Or even a moreproc of "~/bin/myless" to work.
