SetProgramName, needs the quotes of Windows paths?

Does Py_SetProgramName, when running under 32 bit
Windows, need the quotes which you often find in the
shortcuts to windows programs?

I think that in Windows this is to allow spaces to
appear in paths without the system getting confused
over what is a space before a command line parameter 
and what is a space simply in a path name.

Since what we are passing Python is a pure path and
not a command line I'd assume that the quotes are
not needed...
