it is an enduser problem.  macos users are just so religously dogmatic
about putting spaces in every filename, and then screaming `ARCHAIC
PEECEE CRAP!!!' whenever they find those spaces cause inconvenience.

IME macos users have more money then they know what to do with, so if
they want thier damned spaces so bad they should have no trouble at
all paying Tom to implement it (correctly, not by way of kludge),
instead of the usual screams of 'ARCHAIC PEECEE CRAPWARE!!'.
