Subject Re: Quotes in uploaded filenames are not parsed correctly.

I agree it looks bogus, but safari and firefox send the header in that
format.  Not sure about IE since Windows does not allow files with a "
in the name.

I looked over the Content-Disposition header RFC but it does not seem
to address escaping directly.

Either way, it seems that this format is a "browser fact of life"
