So I actually don't want to see a bunch of different methods created for the 
simple task of getting files into the tree somehow.  It really shouldn't 
matter what the files are, the same methodology should be used for all of 
them.  KISS ya know?

Hrm, the command is just a list, so by doing ' '.join(command) we get that 
list space separated just like it would be ran.  Why would you change that?

Since the command isn't ran in a "shell" if you will, quotes are not needed, 
and in fact if they are added you'll wind up with the quotes in your volume.
