In the end, I backslash quoted all whitespace in the patch you merged,
because it does appear to be possible to get tabs and newlines into VDI

  # NAME=$(echo foo; echo bar)
  # qemu-img create -f sheepdog "$NAME" 1
  Formatting 'foo
  bar', fmt=sheepdog size=1 
  # collie vdi list
    name        id    size    used  shared    creation time   vdi id
  bar      1  0.0 MB  0.0 MB  0.0 MB 2011-06-19 21:24   226618
