I normally work in Windows with POV-Ray, but I have access to some big linux
boxes that I'd like to use for my longer renderings.  At the moment I'm trying
to figure out how I can use quickres.ini to set the resolution options, rather
than specifying them individually on the command line, or fixing them within my
scene.ini file.

I updated my copy of quickres.ini to include a section called [default], as well
as a bunch of sections I had added to my windows installation to keep things
consistent.

On the linux box, if I run:

povray $POVHOME/ini/quickres[default] scene.pov

The rendering starts as expected.

povray $POVHOME/ini/quickres[foo] scene.pov

Also works, even though there is no subsection labeled [foo].

povray $POVHOME/ini/quires[160x120, No AA] scene.pov

fails with "Failed to parser command-line option".

I have tried:
'160x120, no AA'
"160x120, no AA"
"160x120,\ no AA"
....

I can't seem to find the magic to allow specifying a section name with embedded
spaces in it.

Do I need to go rename all of the sections in quickres.ini to remove the spaces?
