I don't think that we can do anything about your problem. The user of
os.system() is responsible to do the quoting himself. os.system() is
just a tiny wrapper around the low level C function. We don't plan to
chance the fact that os.system() doesn't handling quoting.
However the subprocess module is clever enough to do the quoting for you.
