[Moin-user] Linking to attachments with spaces

When I try:


I get

   Upload new attachment "LONG Filename - With Spaces (V1.0").doc

That's progress.  It recognizes the filename up to the close parenthesis.

I was hoping there was a way I could surround the filename in quotes or 
something to get MoinMoin to recognize it.  I was looking to use 
MoinMoin as a collaborative tool for the software development team I on. 
  We all have Windows machines, (and Windows filenames can contain 
spaces) so it would be cumbersome to rename filenames to remove spaces 
or replace the spaces with %20.
