Spaces can work as a string delimiter, too.
See [ruby-talk:70206] and surroundings.

BTW, I still believe spaces are no good as delimiters. For it allows
one to do "perfect" obfuscation.

e.g., what is the output of the following? (warning, if you want to run
it be sure you copy it byte per byte :-)

p :A; a = %	; puts "Hello, world!"	
p :B; a = %     ; puts "Hello, world!"

:A 
Hello, world!
:B

or
:A
:B
Hello, world!

Sigh.  I like to think it's just the Linux people who want to be on
the "leading edge" so bad they walk right off the precipice.
