Subject: Bug#274700: flac: --export-vc-to should quote strings containing spaces

Package: flac
Version: 1.1.0-11
Severity: normal

eval `metaflac --export-vc-to - "$flacfile"`

fails if a vc-field contains spaces because the strings are not
quoted. If they were, using metaflac in scripts would be much easier
like in

eval `metaflac --export-vc-to - "$flacfile"`
id3 -A "$ALBUM" -t "$TITLE" -a "$ARTIST" -y "$DATE" -g "$GENRE" -T "$TRACKNUMBER" "$mp3file"                                                

Now I need to do this nasty workaround:

eval `metaflac --export-vc-to - "$flacfile" | sed s'/=/="/' | sed 's/$/"/'`
