currently os.execve will give an error for something like
while in C this is valid behavior.

This patch accepts the above empty second arg.

An updated patch, this fixes all exec* commands to make the
second arg optionally empty, and the documentation is
updated to reflect the changes.

The patch looks good to me, and allowing this is the right thing to
do. Posix explicitly allows zero arguments to be passed, and the
rationale says that this is to be compatible with the C Standard,
which only requires that main's argc be nonnegative.
