Attached small script should solve this problem and doesn't require
introducing incompatible option in the standard tool.

For example:

find /usr/src -type f | xargs larg cp targetdir

For speed purposes it could be implemented in raw C.



if [ ${#} -le 2 ]; then
        echo "Usage: larg command lastarg arg1 [arg2 ...]"
        exit 0

shift 2
exec ${COMMAND} "${@}" "${LASTARG}"
