If you insert a single quote before hitting tab, readline will
quote the entire string.

I think there's a limit on how much we want to do here.  Our
quoting support is already messy enough.

And I noticed that readline has its limits, too:  it won't list
possible completions after passing the space.  It does from a bash
shell prompt, though (maybe bash helps it out?).
