Does this argument-line parsing weirdness still have relevance to current MSVC runtimes?

Changing os.spawn() seems like a non-starter because it'll break existing code; the Python landscape has changed and is a higher-level, more useful way to run subprocesses (it has a MS C runtime-alike function, list2cmdline).

Unless someone submits a patch to change _nt_quote_args in distutils/, I'll close this bug in a few months (the next time I visit the really old bugs).
