Reposting this.
Even if there is no way to perform the quoting, any workaround ideas, short of creating additional script files, would be helpful.

Let's say I want to have an exec action like this:

exec "/bin/bash -c 'mail -s "multi word subject" address@hidden ' "

This will not work because the quotes around the subject collide with the outer quotes.
I have tried several types of escaping these quotes or single quotes, but have't found the way to do it.
How can I escape quotes so the command is passed to the bash script properly?
