I don't want OOB quoting specified in MCP 2.1. We don't have any
experience with this and there isn't an available server that
contains the solution we pulled out of a hat in the last month. I
don't want to block correct MCP implementations on a new MOO server
release given that sweeping this issue under the rug has not, for the
most part, bitten any actual implementations.
Yes, I fully understand this issue must be resolved for correctness.
We should make note of this in the spec and claim that the next rev
will resolve it.
