thanks! That was exactly what I was looking for. I was already 
subclassing ShellCommand. I was not aware that self.build is available 
there. Sometimes it is a little bit hard to find the intended way since 
so few examples are available. Documentation became really better the 
last years, but more examples would be so helpful!
