I can't remember it has been a long time since we made this change and 
investigated it. I ran a quick test and the gcc command produced by your 
recommendation is identical to the one with the many backslashes.

I don't know if there are any other caveats. The single quote solution is the 
simplest solution and I find it very hard to believe that nobody had thought 
of it before.

It's worth reinvestigating. It's in bugzilla as bug #487
