I hate windows shells!

The problem is that
1. Consider the following bat file

echo debug>bin\a.exe
echo bin\a.obj>>bin\a.exe

I would expect that the first line of bin\a.exe should contain "debug" and
nothing more. But, if there's a trailing space on the first line of bat file,
it is transferred to bin\a.exe

2. Consider
actions yfc-compile { echo foo > bar }
Here, jam happily takes everything inside "{}", *including spaces* to be
action text.

Fixing jam would be good, but in the short time I'll introduce new method
"read_and_strip". I also plan to add a new method
"expect_content" which will take care of stripping and slashes direction.
