I think that's probably mostly a happy coincidence; I'm not committed
to a policy of ensuring that all GUCs can be set to whatever value you
want without using the space character.  Besides, what's so special
about enum GUCs?  There can certainly be spaces in string-valued GUCs,
and you're not going to be able to get around the problem there with
one-off kludges.
