You asked if it was safe to fix this in Emacs CVS now.

Sorry, I misunderstood.

I see now.  I've fixed this as you suggested with shell-command-switch.


An interactive function can be used non-interactively but

AFAICS the optional extra parameters for shell-command
control the output/error of the command, not the minibuffer message.

Yes, I read the docstring and understood that. I only proposed that
maybe there should be another optional parameter to supress that

Call-process is more low level and does (I think)
what is needed.  Why not use it?

Well, the primary reason was what you now have fixed. Secondly, the
previous code was shorter and therefore easier to read.

Anyway, if `call-process' is the right tool for the job, of course we
should use it.
