Is it really the right approach to just replace sh with C? IMHO forking
and wait for the result should not be done if it can be avoided. It just
adds overhead.

Of course you can argue that just replace sh with C is a good first step
towards to actually do the command in "full C". Altough I'm afraid that
that will get such low priority that it won't be done.
