This is.. er.. "horrible". PostgreSQL supports a *lot* of different
types and the only way to support them all is to let the driver do the
quoting (possibly with the user adding its own quoting rules, see
PEP-246 adapt() in psycopg 2). I suppose your driver is not quoting
PostGis or or even simple geometrical types mapped to Python instances,
