Not too much, but I guess I lack some background in qubes internals :)

Doing so:

$ qvm-run -a -p qube "echo $0"
# => sh

$ qvm-run -a -p qube "ps aux"
# Inclues
# => /bin/bash /usr/bin/qubes-session
# => su -l user -c /usr/bin/xinit
# => ps aux (without `sh -c` before)

$ qvm-run -a -p qube 'echo $SHELL'
# => /bin/zsh
