OK, now I'm on Windows XP and things aren't looking too good.

It seems that \" will retain the quote marks but then the spaces get
gobbled.

But if you replace the spaces with another character:

python.exe test.py  \"abc#def\"#123

then:

import sys
commandLine = "".join(sys.argv[1:])

prints commandLine.replace('#',' ')

gives:

"abc def" 123

Don't know if you can use that technique or not.
