true, but i am not sure if it can be considered as a problem of
[msgfile], but rather of pd in general, since there is no escape
mechanism. i am even not sure, if it would be a good idea, that
[msgfile] would accept lists, what you are actually requesting. 

afaik, you _can_ open files with a space in the path, but you need to
create the symbol accordingly. for example, if you use [openpane] to get
the path, it works, because [msgfile] gets a symbol containing spaces
instead of a list in that case. alternatively you could also use
[list2symbol] (which is also part of zexy) to create symbols with
spaces, if you don't want to use [openpanel].
