Provide an option to run commands via sh -c
The new flag "shell" instructs pies to run the command marked with it as '/bin/sh -c $command'. Alternative shell can be supplied ising the 'program' statement. This is useful if the command line uses shell-specific features (command or variable expansion, redirection, pipes, etc.) This commit also fixes a bug in the 'env' statement handling: a single argument with embedded whitespaces was undergoing word splitting and thus incorrectly handled as multiple arguments. * NEWS: Document changes. * doc/pies.texi: Likewise. * src/comp.c (component_free): Free command. (component_finish): Split command into argv/argc as directed by the CF_SHELL flag. * src/pies.c (_cb_command): Remove. Functionality moved to component_finish(). (_cb_env): Bugfix. Don't split arguments. * src/pies.h (CF_SHELL): New flag. (component) <command>: New member. * tests/ Add new tests. * tests/ Add new tests. * tests/aux/respawn: Change default timeout to 1 second. * tests/ Minor change. * tests/ New test.
