Just so I've got this clear in my mind...

This is an intentional change, and I should expect this new behaviour in 
future releases of ruby?

Will it appear in the current series of stable snapshots? Or is it slated for 
1.9 onwards?

I don't think I overstate the case if I say that this change is going to bust 
a whole lot of ruby code; system() is fairly fundamental...

Shouldn't this new functionality be moved to 'system2()' or something?
