I just don't see why the individual commands cannot decide which parts
of their command lines that are space sensitive and which are not...
I.e. every command is responsible for parsing their command line. What I
want to mimic is to be able to say
  debconf->subst(debconf, "VAR", "..... . .    ... ... . .")
I.e. with a *decent* API and a *decent* backend<->frontend protocol,
this would be a non-issue. However, the protocol is fixed, and the API
isn't helping :P so I'll settle for my solution.
