I'm not _that_ new to tex or latex. I was referring specifically to  
file names with spaces,
since that is now officially supported in web2c/pdftex. Some  
syntactic sugar must have
been added to tex to support these, otherwise the space would  
terminate the filename,
and the file would never find that file.
