Actually, this doesn't work either because they preserve the single
quotes and pass them into the program with the argument. So instead
of getting just * as the argument in svn.exe, we get '*'.

So, it still appears to me that we can't use VS2005's setargv.obj
unless MS fixes it (which appears unlikely at this point).
