One disadvantage, yes: the %PATHS% replacement would have to be dropped.
Because if that one is passed always, we could easily (too easily) cross
the limit of the command line length.
That means we'd have to only use %PATH% (the temp file containing the
list of files), which however makes it harder to write hook scripts
(they will have to read and parse that file first).
