"Using the same rules as the MS C runtime" means that, given a sequence (list) of arguments, create a string that uses the same quoting that the MS C runtime uses.  That is, if you have a sequence of arguments in a C program, and you want to call another windows program, you quote that sequence into a string using the same rules that list2cmdline uses.

Can you suggest a wording for the doctring that would make this clearer?
