Niklas,

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 
http://ant.apache.org/ant2/actionlist.html#exec), 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.
http://svn.plexus.codehaus.org/trunk/plexus-utils/src/main/java/org/codehaus/plexus/util/cli/

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.

processes (Runtime.exec() on steroids) in a simple way.

code and removed all Ant specifics for some of my other projects. I 
would be happy to contribute and maintain this code should you be 
interested.
