Compared to doing nothing?  The result did look easier to grok,
especially as we no longer need to worry about another way to do the
same thing (i.e. run_command() vs run_command_v_*() variants) and
can get rid of the flags constants that need to be kept in sync with
the members of the child_process struct.

Compared to adding the _l_opt() variant?  Surely, as that goes the
other direction to add more callers that use the flags constants,
without much practical gain (which was a bit sad, but we only found
that out after seeing the result).
