Modules with spaces will *NOT* work in the modules file. The CVSROOT/modules 
processing does *not* support \-escapes, so the module expansion *must* be one 
token without spaces.

In general, CVS simply doesn't support directories and files with spaces in any 
reliable and predictable way (you'd have to know the ins and outs of each 
command's internal implementation in order to know how to get that name past 
the command processing).  As our ex-first lady used to say:

  "Just say no" (to files and directories with spaces).

That's just how it is. You'll cause yourself endless grief with them, and 
you'll keep getting burned over and over again.
