So, um, did you try doing exactly this with the normal step.ShellCommand? I
just tried that and it seems to work just fine. I had assumed there was a bug
in the way it used self.__class__.parms (I can no longer remember why I
didn't use just self.parms), but when I went to run a test, it seems like
there isn't actually a bug there.

What problem did you run into that required the custom subclass?
