Well that's an interesting question. In Linux I too never create
directories with spaces -- I spend my non-Eclipse life in a shell...
However when I use my Mac I create naturally named files and
directories just because it works.

The fact that the first time I tried out DSF it was with a project
called "hello world" is just unlucky, but it's something that
shouldn't lock up the IDE :)
