> Fileinstall 3.5.0 added handling of .config file with an expanded syntax for configuration
files allowing proper handling of arrays, etc. A great feature.
> There is one thing that appears to be handled improperly though - if the values in the
key/value pairs have spaces in them, the files are written back with backslash escapes for
the spaces. 
> What is the justification for that?
> The effect is that the file is different from the original - which is quite a pain for
automated installation with files generated from templates. The fake changes become a maintenance
nightmare.
> It appears that escaping of spaces can be harmlessly removed, and perhaps should not
be a part of the feature...
