It will work with double-quotes

What you want to do (in this case, at least) will work with double-quotes: optionlist=("media type" = CD-ROM,...

There are still some problems with OPTIONLIST used in the UPDATEFORM, such as not being able to specify a display label that's different from the column name if you need to put the column name in quotes, and not being able to specify a numeric data column (the column will always be assumed to be character data, even without the single-quotes, and in fact single-quotes cause a problem). I hope to get those problems worked out in the next release, but just using double-quotes should work for you in this particular case.
