IIUC, that means;

  1. service signals (shutdown etc) aren't recognized by cmd 
     (sh for you linux observers) in any useful manner.

  2. it invokes cmd, which invokes the apps.  You are stuck
     with an instance of cmd for the lifetime of the process.

Seems like a big leap backwards, IMHO.  If anything, a psuedo-sh
script interpreter which picked up the envvar assignments (the
only thing you want to move to .cmd for, anyways) makes more
sense than this.
