Yeah, this is too specific an issue for me to
contribute.

Did you, in your words, expose the system exec, but not
as a built-in but just as code? Did you succeed with
that? If so, do you mind showing us?

What happens if you put a C function in the emacs C
which does exec, recompile, and then bind that to a
command? Would that work? Sounds kind of dangerous, but
you shouldn't be afraid of your computer, of course.
