          <para>
            This option is deprecated. Instead, use <option>--</option>
            to terminate the options, and put the program and arguments to
            execute after it: for example, instead of
            <userinput>gnome-terminal -e "python3 -q"</userinput>, prefer to use
            <userinput>gnome-terminal -- python3 -q</userinput>.

            Note that the <replaceable>COMMAND</replaceable> is not run via
            a shell: it is split into words and executed as a program. If
