I am a Windows user, I create filenames with spaces and "exotic" 
characters (such as those in "Hội An", for which I have a large number 
of files as it is the name of our hotel's restaurant) all the time, 
except when such files are destined for delivery over the web.  I would 
welcome full support for such filenames in TeX Live
