I think either way would be OK.
I guess ideally

   C-M-SPC "

should do



   C-M-SPC " "

should do


but it's OK if we don't reach this ideal.

I don't see the need to extend electric-pair's code for this use
case, indeed, except if it can be done with a well-placed hook.

I wouldn't punish you for it.

The patch looks OK.  Installing it on emacs-24 sounds good, thank you
(and no, it won't be cherry picked: it'll be merged instead).
