I was thinking about --xx="y y" being windows style of quoting and windows
originating apps stripping, and Unix style quoting is more over the entire
parameter ( "--xx=y y" ), with the shell stripping (though the shell does
support nesting iirc)

But forget about it, for the thread, Michael's comment is perfectly valid,
and I didn't meant to say this was better. It was meant as a side remark.
