r472: * Fixed issues with extended parameters to dh_gencontrol including spaces
and quotes. This was some histirical cruft that deals with splitting up the string specified by -u, and it should not have applied to the set of options after --. Now that it's fixed, any and all programs that support a -- and options after it, do not require any special quoting of the succeeding options. Quote just like you would in whatever program those options go to. So, for example, dh_gencontrol -Vblah:Depends='foo, bar (>= 1.2)' will work just as you would hope. This fix does NOT apply to -u; don't use -u if you must do something complex. Closes: #89311 * Made escape_shell output a lot better.
