No, the CVS designers did not envision whitespace in filenames (it
causes so many problems on Unix, which is where CVS was designed, that
no one ever does it).  However, CVS itself does not, to my knowledge,
have any problems with whitespace in filenames other than it's interface
to the administrative scripts.  As long as you don't use any
administrative scripts that try to parse the filenames, it should work
