FWIW, space is a valid filename character on both Unix and Windows.
This means that any script that assumes filenames to be space-free
(and lacking other shell special characters) is, IMO, broken.
Keychain has a lot of these space-in-filenames problems. I sent a
corrective patch against keychain 2.0.3 to the two listed maintainers
at the end of November, but received no reply.
