Or maybe something like
+- something like that.
I'm not telling that Boost.Process's interface is
perfect and in fact in the review I noticed
that it is not clear and hard to understand.
However what you suggest is terribly cryptic.
It may be seems to be clear but actually is is very wired
construction that hard to understand and would likely
lead to very bad error messages.
rm [ "foo.txt" % "bar.txt" ]
Would not work...
