It should work in files/directories, but I don't think the
CVSROOT/modules file will work well with spaces, due to its syntax.

You'll have to do special things in the loginfo/commitinfo files also
to cope wth spaces (cvsnt does its best but the script will still need
to handle it).  We have this working here & it seems OK.
