Comment (by jarrod.millman):

 I received this email from David M. Cooke on Nov. 19th:
 My opinion is that it's not necessary, or correct. The fix leaves
 quotes in if there is no whitespace, so '"Hi"' is converted to
 ['"Hi"'], while '"Hi there"' becomes ['Hi there']. I can't see when
 you'd want that behaviour.

 Also, it's only used by ccompiler (numpy.distutils.ccompiler replaces
 the version in distutils.ccompiler). numpy.distutils.fcompiler
 *doesn't* use this version, it uses distutils.utils.split_quoted.
 Since we run into more variety in terms of command lines with the
 Fortran compilers than the C compilers I think, and haven't been
 bitten by supposedly-bad quoting problems, I'll say we don't need our
