How about a doc fix then?

I'm not so worried about a '"cmd"' to exec(), but more about other
fields. Remember that shell commands are a very small portion of
the fields used in MTT - there's others that are explicitly used as
portions of commands. For example you could do something like this:

shell_command = ./configure @foo@
foo = "CFLAGS=-g -O"

which then wouldn't work.
