I'm uneasy using such tricks in our sources.  No one said they will
continue working in future versions of cmd.exe, or that they work now
in replacement shells used out there.  It could also get in the way of
developing cmdproxy.

The use case is marginal enough for us to leave it alone, I think.

Thanks.
