Or, we can use U+00A0 NO-BREAK SPACE, once we already have unicode
variable names :-)
(probably some people would find it difficult to type, though
with my keyboard layout it is COMPOSE + SPACE + SPACE, not 
more difficult than _).
Well, reading code listings could be a bit confusing.
Thinking about it, U+2005 FOUR-PER-EM SPACE makes more sense.
Aesthetically, too :-)
