Of course, but that would constitute "common practice". "Best practice" 
in my book is the one that causes the least trouble, which 
names-with-whitespace clearly don't. Though by this day and age, I admit 
that programs causing the trouble are the culprits and can be declared 
broken, not the admission of whitesapce.
