I have little sympathy for spaces in filenames:-), main reason that  I
that it might be worth raising here is that Alexander reported that it
worked in miktex
and generally differences between implementations ought possibly be known
about even
if they can't be avoided.

certainly It's not a major issue and not worth doing anything about unless
it was entirely trivial. The number of formats that are not one of the
standard ones must be vanishingly small anyway, and no one could _need_ a
space in a format name.
