Words in quoted command line arguments containing whitespace are split into separate entries of the argument vector sys.argv. This implemetation (quote removal + word splitting) removes information required to read string arguments passed via the command line.

The expected behaviour would be to unquote the argument, but not to conduct word splitting within the quoted text.

Test program output:

> ./argtest arg1 arg2 "this should be a single argument"
  ['./argtest', 'arg1', 'arg2', 'this', 'should', 'be', 'a', 'single', 'argument']
