I don't really know. I've been trying to make the smallest possible fix
for the meantime, while simultaneously working on a more thorough
solution. I can experiment with not writing a quote, but I keep screwing
this up _because_ the system is so convoluted, and poking something over
here results in things falling apart over there. Apparently the
regression tests aren't good enough yet, either. Anyway, I'll try to
come up with something later today.
