against retardery. If someone *insists* on including, bad enough
spaces, but *punctuation* into filenames and complete urls, then *he's*
the one with the problem. Garbage in, garbage out. If the link gets
screwed up so that it's broken (ie, can't click-through it), then too
I always try to separate urls with at least a space, eg, at the end of a
sentence, so there's no confusion whether/not that trailing dot belongs.
Me personally, I wouldn't worry about trying to contort a 'vim' script
to deal with crap like that.
But *publishers* (like wiki) who merge urls with other surrounding
text/punctuation? That's unforgiveable. Someone should edit the
page/entry itself to fix it.
