This issue seemed familiar, and upon digging through my inbox I find
that Albert Chin reported related problems in pgsql-hackers on 7/10/99.
That discussion tapered off without quite agreeing on a fix.  Albert was
recommending using "sed" to remove quote marks, but I'm thinking that we
really ought to just source the darn script rather than trying to
emulate the shell's evaluation rules...
