Subject Re: [proposal] exec support in commons

I'm in favour and think commons is the right place to do it. This has 
been on the table for a number of years (eg, it's just a matter of 
getting some momentum, I think. Personally, I still don't have the time 
right now as I have 2 other similar commons components to try and get 
started on :)

In other projects I have been using plexus-utils' Commandline class 
which is based on some similar code.

A combination of that and the Ant Exec tasks would be a very useful 
standalone library, I believe. I would probably extend that to include 
other handling that is dependant on the operating system.
