Quite the opposite is true with current CVS. You are going to get a
deprecation warning for the command attribute of <exec>. The preferred
way is to say

<exec executable="command">
  <arg value="value that contains spaces" />
  <arg line="value that shall be splitted like the OS would do" />
  <arg path="some;string:treated;as:a;path" />
  <arg file="relative/name/resolved/to/an/absolute/path/by/Ant" />
