Here is the patch with the changes suggested by Brett.
Having created this patch, I had second thoughts on this change. Folks who use pip often, usually use it without any quotes, like `pip install requests`, `pip install CherryPy`. Pinned down versions are most often required by projects and they mention it in the requirements.txt in an unquoted manner
It works fine as it is not the shell which is parsing this file.
Since ">" thing parsed by shell on the command line is a special thing, why not address that scenario with more clarification, instead of quoting all the examples, which seem contrary to the common usage patterns?
