    pxrun: Will unescape all but the first argument and exec the
           resulting list. So eg: pxrun tla add <escaped-filename>
    px0: Will convert tla's output to format appropriate for xargs -0
    pxargs: Almost the same as px0 | xargs -0 -l1. The almost means that
            unlike px0 it WILL split on space (hence the -l1 and not
