definitely. the first question i hear from people using netpd/pd the
first time is: 'how can i type spaces?' yet i decided to not add another
dependency for netpd just because of this rather silly restriction. but
since it seems, that the lack of spaces is really troubling users, i am
unsure, whether i should change that policy.
since one can even open a file containing spaces in the path from pd, it
would actually make sense, if symbolatom would support that. i can't
think of a case, where supporting spaces would break anything (or am i
overseeing something?). 
before i change my policy about using externals in netpd, i would like
to ask (probably miller?), if there is a chance, that symbolatom is
changed accordingly in the future?
