details to know that you need to quote that single quote. If you don't
quote it, you get a message about a shell syntax error that isn't at
all helpful or clear about where the problem is.
Again, my main point here is just a warning that the change I've
pushed intentionally does not attempt to handle all possible quoted
multi-word arguments, and I think that's fine because it's very likely
an extremely rare use case.
