Thanks, but boost::assign::list_of is already used (at least in my sample
programs :). The idea here is that someone might want to create a child
process with:

create_child("program", "--lots -of /command 'line options'");

Whether this is worth to be supported by the library out of the box I
don't know (as you are right boost::assign::list_of helps here).
