I apologize for not being more helpful and actually posting such a script
(would be happy to do so when I find the link to the quoting spec),
but I would write a python script (or even a C program in the unlikely event
it becomes a bottleneck) to quote/unquote lv names.  Use that
in your shell scripts to get the dev name.
