For some reason I was thinking that we already handled double-quotes
here (as we do in other places where quoting is optional). But it looks
like we don't currently, so yeah, I don't think it is worth adding due
to the potential confusion.

Backslash-escaping was what I had originally assumed you meant, and it
was, so we are all on the same page (the patch was just broken. ;) ).
