That said: Synctex needs tome work, as it will include the quotes in  
the file-name, making the file invisible to Skim (and perhaps TeXShop,  
not tested). Damn unix developers!

So if you want to use Synctex (yes, you want that), you'll need to  
avoid spaces in the file names for now. Otherwise there is no reason  
to avoid spaces, and spaces in directory names up to your root file  
are inconsequential as well (that still holds true in the synctex case).
