Calling a script from a terminated script

Weird as it sounds, that's what I want to do. I have a script that needs to
reinvoke itself, and I have this part solved. But the caller hangs around
while the called version executes; if it also calls itself the stack keeps
getting bigger. Is there a way I can make the caller schedule the callee and
then terminate so there's no stacking?
And, am I right in thinking there's no way for a script to retrieve the
entire command line used to invoke it? There's /proc/$$/cmdline but the
spaces are 0x00 and I can't seem to snag them to turn them back to spaces.
Thanks much for any info,
