bug#22580: shell-escape in tty in ls

Maybe I'm the only one, but the new change in ls seems bad:

      set_quoting_style (NULL, shell_escape_quoting_style);

This is set if the output is a TTY.
Why would we want to quote if the output is a TTY?

It makes the output appear strange to me.

### Begin paste from terminal  ####
address@hidden ~ $ mkdir ls
address@hidden ~ $ cd ls
address@hidden ~/ls $ touch HelloWorld
address@hidden ~/ls $ touch Hello\ World
address@hidden ~/ls $ ls
'Hello World'  HelloWorld
address@hidden ~/ls $ ls -l
total 0
-rw-r--r-- 1 pvint users 0 Feb  6 22:35 'Hello World'
-rw-r--r-- 1 pvint users 0 Feb  6 22:35 HelloWorld
#### end paste from terminal  ####

This change occurred at version 8.25

I don't see the benefit to this change (partly because I'm a stubborn old
guy who thinks "it's been this way for decades!"), but if there is a good
one, I'll say "Cool, thanks!".
