Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/23.0.60 (gnu/linux)
When running an asynchronous command with `shell-command', special
sequences in the output are not processed, so for example, the
progress-meter of wget gets output repeatedly "end-to-end" instead of
printing over itself for the effect of animation. If comint were used
instead of call-process for asynchronous processes, such commands'
output would be displayed "correctly". Is there anything blocking such
a change? I would find it very convenient, as I often want to run an
mplayer or wget process with M-!.
