This may sound ridiculous, but I'm in a ridiculous sort of mood. :-)
We *could* do a brute-force loop of sorts.

   command = <get command from env>
     err = <run command>
     if <err means that command wasn't found> && <command has a space in it>
       while <command has spaces in it>
         <prepend stuff after the last space in command to the args list>
         <remove stuff after the last space in command from command>
         goto loop;
       return err;
