I think you're right.  vcsh 1.20140313 supports both syntaxes:

   run <repo> \
       <command>        Use this repository
   <repo> <git command> Shortcut to run git commands directly

But there was a merge of a pull request in October last year which
moved documentation toward the simplified syntax:

The shorter syntax is the standard one in vcsh's documentation and,
IMO, is more straightforward.  I think it should be supported somehow,
at least for ''vcsh_trusted_checkout' which is always used when
managing vcsh repos via mr.
