Then the proposal should allow for any kind of space characters (that is, any
character for which isspace() is True). There are several non-breaking space
characters in the unicode character set, with varying character widths, which is
important for typography rules. See
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-breaking_space for some examples.
