[kwlug-disc] Renaming a directory containing double quotation marks

If the file starts with normal letters or numbers, then I type:
$ rmdir abc
Then hit tab and let bash do the escaping for me.
Another way is to see any pattern of regular characters then do:
$ rmdir "*abc*"
(assuming no other directories in the current directory match those
And let the shell figure it out.
