[Scons-users] Use raw substitution with Actions

I want to build an Action using raw variable substitution, i.e. my action
looks a bit like this:

e['something'] = 'a        b      c'
e.Command('target', 'source', Action('echo $something > $TARGET'))

This doesn't work because the internal whitespace in $something is removed
(and I need it).  I see the documentation for subst allows for a raw mode
(which works), but since I'm not using subst directly, is there any way to
construct the Action I want here?
