The parser knows how to parse backslash space to mean a space within a 
symbol, but the printer doesn't handle it.

Additionally, third-party parsers in other languages don't support 
blackslash space, except the one I wrote in Tcl.

Il y a aussi [#import] et/ou [#sprintf], avec [#to_l], pour faire des 
listes d'octets.
