You can report issues here: https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/

The code for shellwords is here: 
https://github.com/ruby/ruby/blob/trunk/lib/shellwords.rb

Looks like it is explicitly for Bourne shells, with no consideration for 
Windows. On the upside, it is just Ruby so should be easy to add what 
you need.
