Gregg, and Jeff and company, if this is reviewed and everyone is happy with
an end result, I'd like to ensure 2.4.2 compatibility and get tagging.

We seem well overdue for a release.

There is a group of issues with spaces in command lines, spaces in file names
that need to be resolved for the typical windows scenario (and obviously also
unix, just more unusual there).  I think we are best off calling 2.3.7 about
baked right now, tagging, reviewing and releasing, and calling the
flavor which fixes these command/file string argument quirks.
