Have you tried public floggings?  Works for me.  :-)

But really, why do you want to give your users a reason to think
that Unix is less capable than Windows?  Both systems allow spaces
in filenames, but only Unix has sophisticated shells that treat
whitespace as a word separator.  I'd say the real solution is to
use the flexibility of Unix to fix the scripts that are breaking.
A little judicious quoting should do the trick.  Let's see NT fix
a problem so easily!
