    The previous patches to workaround
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/830473 drastically over estimated the
    number of characters in commands by treating the repr() version of the
    command array as a reasonable estimator of commandline length. This
    caused commands attempt to write argsfiles before they should have.
    The new calculation calculates the number characters in the command
    array and adds the number of spaces that would be added by ' '.join(cmd)
    this provides a much closer estimate of the commandline length.
    This also limits the CLI-length on non windows platforms to 200kB. This
    prevents us hitting the much larger argument limits on Linux/BSD/MacOS
