#8 Fix stripping by "aap install" on Windows

Unstable (example)
windows (1)
Darren Bane

Using aap 1.0.92, Python 2.7.2

If I run "aap install GUI=console PREFIX=.." aap tries to run strip '..\bin/tbrandy.exe' (with the single quotes). In Windows cmd.exe, the single quotes break this command (changing the slashes didn't fix it).

On the other hand, I wouldn't be surprised if this patch broke the case where PREFIX or the target file has a space in it for UNIX hosts. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Just removing the quotes will be a problem when there is a space in the path.
    Using double quotes would work. Can you try that?

    Double quotes do indeed work. I also missed one usage for remote copying in the previous patch, so have attached a new patch. Thanks.
