I think you need to complain to the libedit authors, not us.
While I can't find any API spec anywhere for libedit's completion
functionality, it seems to be meant to match GNU readline,
and the GNU docs are pretty clear that the results of
rl_attempted_completion_function should be taken literally.
I think they injected the extra quoting at the wrong level ...
