Cool.  Based on this thread and an experiment I tried, some obvious (to me)
things come to mind:

    * get_token() needs to be fixed to handle the 'bar'asd'foo' case

    * the shlex class should handle strings as input, not just file-like
      objects

    * get_word() or get_words() methods in the shlex class could implement
      the shellwords functionality
