Are you referring to backticks? Outside that, I couldn't find a hint in 
"man unlang" (after reading it front to back three times) that made 
reference to external shell scripts.

Also, what's the method for passing the array into unlang - the 
equivalent to ARGV?

I'm hoping for something along the lines of "exec username" that returns an array of variables, in this case the list of group names.
