I am generally in favor too.  But I have no idea how to design a good
interface for this.  I fear doing a bad job worse than avoiding doing
it at all.

With that caveat, would it be enough to use the same escapes that 'ls -b'
uses and accept that into the strings?  That would make it easier to
cut and paste the result into the configuration file.  It would also
allow keeping basically the same design as currently exists.
