tox >=2.0 fails with & in path

Issue #252 on hold
Gilles Dartiguelongue created an issue

Starting with tox 2.0, tox fails when trying to launch commands with path containing & :

$ /var/lib/jenkins/shiningpanda/jobs/3d4c850b/tools/bin/python -c "import tox; tox.cmdline();" -c tox.ini -e py27
GLOB sdist-make: /opt/jenkins/workspace/ocs.conf/TOXENV/py27/label_exp/armhf&&python/
py27 create: /opt/jenkins/workspace/ocs.conf/TOXENV/py27/label_exp/armhf&&python/.tox/py27
py27 installdeps: nose, coverage, pylint, pep8
py27 inst: /opt/jenkins/workspace/ocs.conf/TOXENV/py27/label_exp/armhf&&python/.tox/dist/

While this is imho a problem with py/pytest not taking care of escaping strings passed to shell it is a problem specifically happening with tox >=2.0.

We need this to work for supporting label expressions in jenkins jobs and the jenkins tox plugin does not allow restricting the version it uses.
