The user controls the spaces, on Linux at least:

  $ svn ci --editor-cmd "/some/path/with\ spaces"


  $ svn ci --editor-cmd "'/some/path/with spaces'"

Giving the user control over the meaning of spaces lets the user do
things like:

  $ svn ci --editor-cmd "/some/path --some-arg"


  $ svn ci --editor-cmd "VAR=value /some/path"

which would not be possible if all spaces were interpreted as part of
a path.
