initial attempt at documenting child_process.spawn's windowsVerbatimArguments option

...I know, I know, no topic branch. I blame the github online editor for not having that capability. I'm on my cr48 right now and don't have a git client accessible.

Can one of the admins verify this patch?

@muxa

Can this please be added to documentation, since windowsVerbatimArguments option is implemented since 2011. Not having this feature documented is causing headache for developers.

@bnoordhuis

Sure. We take pull requests. :-)

(EDIT: For clarification, that was a joke.)

@bnoordhuis

@damianb Can you sign the CLA and update the commit log? Failing that, I'm willing to amend the commit log for you but I'll need a signed CLA. The URL is http://nodejs.org/cla.html

@vicary

Reminds me of EDI.
