No, it would not. Really!

It is not the matter of content of the string but only of a way of
*presentation* of it by print:

     print arrPlaces

in the example is roughly equivalent to:

     print '[' + repr(a_list[0]) + ', ' + repr(a_list[1]) + ']'


So try:

     print a_list[0]
Output:
     C:\moo

     print a_list[1]
Output:
     C:\supermoo

     print ', '.join(arrPlaces)
Output:
     C:\moo, C:\supermoo

     print ', '.join("'%s'" % item for item in arrPlaces)
Output:
     'C:\moo', 'C:\supermoo'


Cheers,
