> Even if I properly escape spaces in a path at the shell level, Maven seems to re-split
the command parameters. For instance, on Unix, the following should all run the compile goal
with a property foo="bar baz":
>     $ mvn compile "-Dfoo=bar baz"
>     $ mvn compile -Dfoo="bar baz"
>     $ mvn compile -Dfoo=bar\ baz
> But in fact, Maven fails, complaining that "baz" is an invalid task:

>     [ERROR] BUILD FAILURE
>     [INFO] ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
>     [INFO] Invalid task 'baz': you must specify a valid lifecycle phase, or a goal in
the format plugin:goal or pluginGroupId:pluginArtifactId:pluginVersion:goal
>     [INFO] ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

> Is this intended behavior? Seems as if Maven is unnecessarily splitting the string, when
the OS already does as much.
> I was merely trying to run:
>     mvn deploy:deploy-file "-Dfile=/Users/me/Desktop/Bellicose SDK/lib/Bellicose.jar"
...
> In my case, it's practical to work around by renaming the Bellicose SDK folder, but it
seems as if Windows users stuck with "C:\Documents and Settings\..." might have a harder time
of it.
