  Those binaries are not causing problems.
  What *is* causing problems is fellow developers who *think* those
binaries are problematic, for reasons that all come from ignorance
of how Unix (and the shell) works.

  This is, as you have stated, a political issue. It is not a technical
issue, and in particular, it is not a technical issue with execline.
So, please avoid framing it as if it was.

  I totally understand your predicament, but I unfortunately have no
good solution for you, except "educate your peers". Political problems
are not solved with technical fixes, and when you try to do so, not
only do you not entirely fix the political problems, but you also add
technical problems on top. This never ends well.
