Count me in as a person who renames racket installations without spaces.

It is more prudent to design file names without special characters, 
escapes, or quotes.  Otherwise, any shell script that might otherwise work 
on most unix file names may fail.  It's just not worth the hassle guessing 
if all of a system's scripts will be compatible.  As an example, AWK 
scripts used in a pipe are quite susceptible to surprise when one field 
appears as two.  Ditto for 'sort +k ...'.   

A further reason to eschew spaces in file name is documentation.   Having a 
space in a file name within prose is quite likely going to suffer a 
confusing line split.
