You lost me entirely here. It does look like something that works pretty
well for being so wrong...

No "spawn" function involved here, just a very native and basic Win32
CreateProcessW() call.

Are you looking for something like

(mkcl:run-program "cmd" '("/c echo ok 1") :output t)
(mkcl:run-program "cmd" '("/c" "echo" "ok" "1") :output t)

both produce the same output (sent to stdout here by the ":output t" pair,
adjust to your need).
Any slicing or concatenation of the arguments produce the same result.
