Quoting is a solved problem, including quoting quotes.

Using newlines a command argument separator because there may be spaces
in files names is a regression from accepted CLI design, and doesn't
even solve the problem of newlines in file name which filesystems also
allow. Besides, hilarity also ensues there when a file happens to be named
'rm'.
