My earlier patches don't handle spaces, but tried to solve handling of
filenames that start
with strings such as "File::", which happens in perl documentation,
for instance.
I do need to resurrect that work at some point. The null handling
fixes done for Pathname
might help there. But, as I said, I didn't do any fixes for spaces-in-names.
