The default value is determined by \postnotedelim.  So assuming spaces not
stripped \renewcommand{\postnotedelim}{} would probably work in most
cases.  More fancily one could check the next space like xspace.  There's
a mighty cool example using higher level functions here:

I prefer the biblatex behavior then.

Preamble or using \AtNextCite

Perhaps.  Either looks like the famous can of worms.  I guess we should
promote the option above in the manual and that's it.

However beautiful the theory, you should occasionally look at the evidence
