Hmm, your suggestion is more shell-oriented parsing.


In Make, there is no concept of quoting
because it does not touch single-quote, double-quote, whitespaces etc. at all.


$(info "'@@"'' '" ' "' )

will print the message as they are.


This simplifies both the grammar and the parser implementation.

If we expand the quoting by Kconfig,
we need more careful consideration.


[1] In the following, would "hello world" be expanded by Kconfig or by shell?
$(shell, echo "hello world")

[2] Is a quoted comma delimiter or not?
$(if,",",$(A))


If remember I first examined shell-oriented expansion,
but I stopped.

Probably, I found it was much more complex,
then I chose Make-like simpler one.
