#631: IRC bot gives 'ValueError' when fed a singlequote

Comment(by ddunbar):

 The problem is shlex rules allow it to fail, which isn't ideal in an IRC
 bot. I expect the syntax to be
   force build foo any text I want
   force build foo "any text I want"

 When do we need to allow things to be quoted? The only options I can think
 off are builder names (and the like) that had spaces.

 Looking at the code, I'd be tempted to just completely redo how the IRC
 bot does command parsing.
