That's exactly what the value separator is for. If you set explicitly a 
space character as the value separator, you'll get 3 arguments out of 
the quoted string.

However that's a bit complicated just to get several arguments for an 
option. You should rather declare the option as accepting several 
arguments with the hasArgs() method.
