Haven't merged it to 'next'; I will replace with this, with a bit of
retitling to make it shorter.

    mergetools: teach tortoisemerge to handle filenames with SP correctly
    TortoiseGitMerge, unlike TortoiseMerge, can be told to handle paths
    with spaces in them by using -option "$FILE" (not -option:"$FILE",
    which does not work for such paths) syntax.
    This change was necessary because of MSYS path mangling [1], the ":"
    after the "base" etc. arguments to TortoiseMerge caused the whole
    argument instead of just the file name to be quoted in case of file
    names with spaces. So TortoiseMerge was passed
        "-base:new file.txt"
    instead of
        -base:"new file.txt"
    (including the quotes). To work around this, TortoiseGitMerge does not
    require the ":" after the arguments anymore which fixes handling file
    names with spaces [2] (as written above).
