That breaks compatibility with current installations. I don't really think
compatibility should be a show stopper for hudson but some useful improvements
were rejected due to compatibility with older versions.
Lets have some policy.
To me this particular issue is not more important (or much important at all)
than the initial directory stuff with multiple scm locations. Actually the user
could avoid using paths with a space in the name which is not smart to have anyways.
Don't get me wrong. I don't want you to revert the change. I'm asking for a policy.
btw. another rant - such a change should not go without a changelog entry.
