I think you are trying to solve the wrong problem. If people want to use a command-line tool they should know how to use the command line first. They don't have to know every arcane feature of the Bourne Shell, but knowing to escape spaces or quote strings is the bare minimum. Think about it like this: if you are trying to give someone directions you already assume they know how to drive a car, right? If you want to write a book on Racket, then focus on Racket. And if they cannot use the command-line they can still use the GUI tools.
