          Priority: P1

Some Windows programs do not use CommandLineToArgvW. Examples: WinMerge,
GoLink, older programs written for Windows versions before Windows 2000 (which
introduced CommandLineToArgvW). These programs can't handle switches when they
are enclosed in quotes (e.g. "/r").

std.process should not quote parameters unless it is actually necessary for
them to be parsed correctly.
