It's not "DISK=/yada bing bong" - there's no equals sign, so it's not the
same.  But in the same file, parameters that are in A=B format are quoted
as "A=some string with spaces".

Again, no equals sign there.

I guess we're getting into some subtleties though.  And it would be nice to
have the same parser/format for all the different bits of Xymon.  But my
point is, quoting is (in my experience) the same for all "A=B" format
assignments, even if not for "A B" and "A:B" definitions.
