Why? I have been using shares with spaces in their names for years 
without running into problems even once.

Windows fully supports it, so should and does Samba.

In a business environment you NEED proper, human readable names, not 
ugly convoluted substitutes.

Just declare the names in smb.conf as they are, without trying to escape 
anything. It just works.
