Well anyway, it would be 'no skin off of bash's back' if it just
reported what it was given.

If it was given
'  'a b c
it should report
'  'a b c

and not just 'assume' we prefer
'  a' b c
'  a' 'b' 'c'

Just as legitimate and doesn't cause calls in the middle of the night
from the old folks home.

Wait, that stage of the program doesn't know it was given that, and to
make it know would just increase complexity. As would reporting
\ \ a b c
or would it... OK, never mind.
