Yup... annoying! I'll stick to delimiters that mean nothing to UNIX  
and MacOS(9 & below).

Many years ago I got hit by the Space in files name when working in  
TeXtures and complained to Blue Sky Research about it. I was  
basically told that the way it is so live with it. Once I realized  
that TeX was basically a CLI program (where spaces delimit command  
arguments) I stopped putting spaces in file names. I just Capitalize  
each word and it's still legible. At least we have long file names;  
blusmrf.tex is not very helpful 1 week after you names it.

Good Luck,
