That's a very ascii-esqe attitude.  In a fully unicode world, I could 
easily see using U+00A0 (NO-BREAK SPACE) in file names, and still have 
space-delimited CLI work just fine.

But, yeah, in the world we live in today, I try to avoid spaces in 
filenames.  But, instead of turning "My File Name" into MyFileName, I'll 
usually do it as My-File-Name or My_File_Name.
