This sounds like a very very good idea.  All parsers I write for
command line options remove the quotes and keep it as one null
terminated sequence of characters otherwise.  This is consistant for
input from shells like bash and well written command line programs for
windows.  And, the parsing of the single line of options is absolutely
the correct place for removing the quotes, not at an upper level
