Just a minor clarification for other readers: quite probably this has
nothing to do with svn:date being special, but with the shell Greg
used (MS-DOS box?).

So you should read this as "you do not want this when setting
properties under Windows with the same shell as Greg used". The
examples work fine with bash and tcsh (under Linux) and should work
with any reasonable UNIX-style shell (Cygwin under Windows should be
fine, too). Usually svn doesn't see the single quotes at all, because
the shell already handled and removed them. Apparently Windows works
different here.

As the book says at the start, the examples are written with a UNIX
shell in mind.
