   This is interesting. How do you test it?
   AFAICS, The problem with the current infrastructure is that you
cannot have a second executable to start. So you have to start yourself,
and then convince the test framework to let you do your thing rather
than just running another test. You cannot just write a perl/bash script
either as this would not work on Windows.
   If you put submit a CreateProcess test I would be happy to add checks
for the quote / command line parsing.

 The greatest programming project of all took six days; on the seventh day the
  programmer rested. We've been trying to debug the *&^%$#@ thing ever since.
                      Moral: design before you implement.
