You're just chasing the problem around: touch "foo'bar".
"xargs: unmatched single quote".  We can play this game all day.

(Also it's way slower, since it does the exec for each file 
instead of chunking.)  

But the point is, I don't want to have to fight this battle
over and over again.  If you don't name files stupidly, then 
people don't have to think about this problem.

Well, then make sure all your files in evolution dont contain spaces.
Should be an easy task.

That's an adequate solution, but if you'll recall, we got here by
talking about what the *default* and/or built-in file names for 
things are, e.g., "My_foo", versus "My-Foo" versus "My Foo".
