    I'd rather keep it as is. We should be doing IFS partition with quoting,
    UTF-8 awareness according to locale and locale specific rules on
    whitespace. That says "userspace" all over it.

    We can keep this out of kernel which is good - though it reminds me we
    do need to fix backspace/delete in the tty layer on a unicode configured
    tty to do the right thing. (Extra ioctls for unicode delete characters
    are a longer less funny subject though)
