On Windows:

     py.exe program.py column1=2174 and column2='R'

gives:

     argv: ['program.py', 'column1=2174', 'and', "column2='R'"]
     column1=2174 and column2='R'

and:

     py.exe program.py column1=2174 and column2="R"

gives:

     argv: ['program.py', 'column1=2174', 'and', 'column2=R']
    column1=2174 and column2=R
