Argh! Thanks guys for giving me a bug to fix in Meta-CVS. :)

When this software generates a CVS command line and passes down
arguments, the option arguments are represented as separate command
arguments.

$ mcvs --debug -nfz3 up | grep cvs
* invoking ("cvs" "-n" "-f" "-z" "3" "up") in directory
"/home/kaz/mcvs/MCVS"
cvs update: Updating .

So now am I going to need a special case hack for options that do not
allow whitespace? Or can I get away with the assumption that an a
one-letter option that has one argument can always be generated as a
single command line parameter with no whitespace between the option
letter and the argument characters?
