this one doesn't matter.  the {}s are like quotes; its good ritual
to just use them for all of the arguments.

{LetMeIn!} or {h at llo} not working sometimes but working others is
unexpected behavior.  it should at least be consistent.  if it were
consistent, try escaping the special characters, though I don't
think that escaping those is necessary.  see cloginrc(5).
