I hope a setting will be left to allow either option.  I almost never
have to hit C-q<SPACE> to enter a space in a filename, but regularly
use the spacebar to complete filenames.  Of course those not used to
working mostly at shell prompts, and therefore more used to useing
spaces in filenames will obviously have different habits....
