R. David Murray added the comment:

Quote is for quoting shell special characters, not command names.  It would be fairly straightforward to add that to the docs ("Return a version of the string s will with all shell special characters (including whitespace) escaped according to shell escaping rules."  Wordier, but more accurate, and not *too* much longer.
