A history note: once a friend of mine, when introduced to execline, told
me about the Thompson shell [1].  The Wikipedia page said, "by the 1975
release of Version 6 Unix, it was becoming clear that the Thompson shell
was inadequate for most serious programming tasks", which might also
"explain" some people's feeling about execline.
