The Windows command line doesn't expand wildcards. However, Subversion
links the setargv.obj file that _does_ expand wildcards during argument
setup. This was done despite my protests that there is now no way to
prevent argument expansion.

Unfortunately, quoting won't work on Windows, as per above. Also the
Windows command line doesn't understand single quotes, regardless.
