Commands within $(...) are processed as part of normal shell input, but
if you're executing an external command inside and processing the output
as text that's another matter.  "read" and implicit reads such as
"$(<...)" are similar.  In general you don't know whether you expect the
output to be text or binary; there's nothing to stop you capturing
raw data using a $(...).  There are partial workarounds for read
and word splitting by adding $'\r' to IFS.
