IIRC what I have read somewhere, the versions of TeX in the most  
recent TeXLive have been modified to accept a syntax such as:

\input "file name for human beings".tex

To be double-checked, as it's really a vague memory and I'm not sure  
at all.

I haven't checked, either, whether this implies that LaTeX file names  
can now contain spaces. (Until now they couldn't, since LaTeXing a  
file "test file".tex would create a file "test file".aux, which LaTeX  
needed afterwards to be able to read using \input.)
