Also I note that this sort of thing is easily solved by modules. E.g.
IPC::Run which would write this as

  run [ $command, "with", @args ], '>', \my $output;

It's slightly weird syntax perhaps, but it's just a module.

We could consider either pulling IPC::Run into core, or making some new
"IPC"-type module that is core, to handle all these sorts of things.

It doesn't need to be core language syntax.
