So I think this one does more than described. My understanding is that now you can pass env variables into a script. Is that correct? And what was wrong with traditional fork/exec approach? I mean in our particular case. Did you run into oom in some setups?

I've merged all other patches except this one (and one related) and devices build refactor (which I do not like in this form) into github. Gonna give it try (more as in compiling in various setups) and if it works, I'll merge it to a master. Let me know if you'll find any issues with this version.
