quotes and A2K's BBCode

I noticed something about A2K's BBCode. The use of quotation marks in unecessary to quote someone.

E.g.:

Code:[quote="InfraBlue"]blah, blah, blah[/quote]

results in this:
InfraBlue wrote:
blah, blah, blah


but:
Code:[quote=InfraBlue]blah, blah, blah[/quote]

results in this as well:
InfraBlue wrote:
blah, blah, blah

@InfraBlue,
It may be needed (I haven't tested this) if the userid has spaces in it.

@InfraBlue,
I rarely quote, figuring people can see the Reply clue and click on it, but if I do, I use the quote button on a person's post, or, rarely, just copy a sentence. So I don't use BBC code in the top of the answer space to do that.. but I'm wondering if you have enabled the quote button in your Preferences page. Excuse me if you have done that already, possibly long ago.

Test it as well. Though, I'm not sure why this is such an amazing revelation.

@tsarstepan,
Oh, I'll take Tes yeux noirs' and your word for it. Thanks.

The revelation was more along the lines of surprise than amazement to me.

It eliminates the step of using quotation marks when quoting lines of texts.

@InfraBlue,
You don't have to take anybody's word for it. Prove it to yourself. Just make a reply with a quote on it like this

Result:

A name With Spaces wrote:
Hello world!
