If you're trying to write a robust script that uses user-provided filenames, filenames that possibly include quotes/spaces/whatnot, and you pass those on to other utilties, you know that it's important to call system and exec with separate (pre-parsed) arguments.
Unfortunately Windows doesn't provide for this functionality, so this module provides the necessary shell-quoting to make windows as functional as unix. It's really indespensible for cross-platform file utilities.
