In fact, there is an item: "Allow spaces in tags" in the Ideas/Fixme
page of the Shaarli web site, so it's a known issue.  I've sent an
email to the address that I could find suggesting that this be handled
the same way Firefox handles tags, by separating them with ','.

Yes, of course, but I'd rather not have to change hundreds of links
manually, and if code to massage the links would have to be written,
might as well do it right and handle them like Firefox does.
