User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/25.0.93 (gnu/linux)

fixed 6136 23.3.90

Was reported a second time
(http://article.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.help/80250) and then fixed by
576bce32 (2011-03-19 "Fix emerge.el on MS-Windows and MS-DOS...")

But the non-Windows case still uses emerge-metachars.  Should we make it
same on all platforms:

Subject: [PATCH v1] Make emerge always use shell-quote-argument

* lisp/vc/emerge.el (emerge-metachars): Obsolete.
(emerge-protect-metachars): Delete.
(emerge-make-diff-list, emerge-make-diff3-list): Replace all calls to
`emerge-protect-metachars' with `shell-quote-argument' so that shell
quoting is done the same on all system types (Bug #6136).  Also shell
quote `emerge-diff-program' and `emerge-diff3-program'.
