You might be surprised how many people feed the output of "rlog" into
"ci".  So the probability is not as low as you might think.

Anyway, I'd rather not have a solution that merely lowers the
probability of an error.  If we're going to make a change, we should
fix the problem in general, by coming up with a general quoting
scheme.  One possibility would be a byte count in front of the string;
another would be a way to escape characters.
