This isn't a panacea; the filename could still contain single quotes.

It would be much more robust if you could construct the arguments as a
list rather than relying on the shell. Unfortunately, Python's "os"
interface seems to be very much modeled on the Unix C library rather
than what you'd get if you were designing an interface for Python; so,
just as in C, you have to fork and exec yourself if you want to do
things the robust way.
