Hi. I have a feature request. In the backtick command, the [args] arguments actually only can be fixed strings. The feature request is can be pass the String Escapes as arguments to backtick. For example:

backtick 1 0 1 /path/to/script.sh "FIXED TEXT" "SESS:%S" "TITL:%t" "NUMB:%n" "FLG:%f"

which pass to script.sh five args with the Scring Escapes substituted.
