M-q messes with end-of-sentence spacing when period is in quotes

Description

running M-q on "foo. bar" changes nothing. However, if the period is inside quotes, M-q will eat one of the spaces:

running M-q on q{"foo." bar} changes the text to q{"foo." bar}.

::sigh:: the text box ate my spaces. The original strings have 2 spaces after the period.

I have a fix for this at https://github.com/JasonGross/barnowl/tree/edit_fill-paragraph-eos (commit e736dcbe0f115b53809df6d099b183a245c540d8, right now). I'm not sure that this is actually the best way to go about fixing this bug. *shrug*
