Very good!

Many thanks for all your work.

You know, after all the trouble we have run into with messy installation
paths, I think we might consider this an "educational" feature in the
user's own best interest, rather than a bug!

Whatever you do, it would be a good idea to issue at least a sincere
warning if the user tries to install into a path with spaces.

... that, however, we might consider a bug ;)
