} This is related to export foo=$(cmd) problem we have discussed. Obviously,

I don't doubt it, but as you pointed out yourself the POSIX-defined
behavior is to split the arguments of those commands.  If the authors
of shoop, whoever they are, want it to be portable, they should be
avoiding this conflict.  It's easy enough to use

	local orgargs="$*"
