| On a related issue, I agree that shell quoting is a ridiculously
| complex discipline to thrust upon the webtv generation.

  It's unclear to me who you agree with.

| It's too far from their real concerns, since most of them aren't
| "fine points of context-dependent token recognition" aficionados.

  That's not what quoting is about, so what is this?

| I just don't agree that exporting gui windows (or compiled object
| code executable by remote guis, ie Active Security Breach) over
| telecom backbones is necessarily the only solution to the problem.

  I must have missed something.  Is anyone favoring this?

  If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
