Hi Colomban,

RE your discussion on IRC about $subject

To save you searching, some info about g_spawn not working (right) on
windows, and that it won't be fixed:


and it appears that it was always recognised that splitting on space
wasn't an elegant way of generating argv for windows, and the problems
that causes for filenames containing spaces, but nobody has been
concerned enough to fix it :) see:


There is no discussion on why windows commands were used in the first
place, but given the first reference above I guess it might still not
be possible to avoid it.
