I'd highly appreciate such a change.  The last week I had to paste tons
of Java code into several LaTeX listings and I used `just-one-space' and
`kill-line' gazillions of times to reformat it.

And since C-u -1 M-SPC for any negative number is equivalent to C-u 0
M-SPC, I don't think it won't have big impact, at least not in
interactive usage.  And inside the emacs code base, there is only one
call to `just-one-space' with an argument (emulation/cua-rect.el), but
that uses an explitit arg of 0.
