Personally, I am file with that one too. Just note that I guess that
pythons command line parser will strip spaces anyway unless things are
properly quoted, so

-f     moo,foo,boo

will be the same as:
-f moo,foo,boo

but different from:

-f " moo,foo,boo"

In any case, I am more than happy to not do any stripping at all, just
fine with me. Care to send the patch to see if Nicolas accepts it :-)?
