MoreSystemCommands implements an interface with the system command facility. These are the commands that are issued from source files or the system interpreter and they start with a close parenthesis, e.g. spadsys{)what} commands.

systemCommand: String -> Void
systemCommand(cmd) takes the string spadvar{cmd} and passes it to the runtime environment for execution as a system command. Although various things may be printed, no usable value is returned.
