I was wondering if there are any reasons we would ever need files in

./LayoutTests/http/tests/misc/resources/a success.html
./PageLoadTests/svg/files/42450-under the see.svg
./PageLoadTests/svg/files/44057-drops on a blade.svg
./WebCore/manual-tests/inspector/errors-with-space in-url.html
./WebKitSite/demos/transitions-and-transforms/Finder Coverflow.png

./WebKitSite/demos/transitions-and-transforms/Time Machine.png
./WebKitTools/DumpRenderTree/fonts/WebKit Layout Tests 2.ttf
./WebKitTools/DumpRenderTree/fonts/WebKit Layout Tests.ttf

Can we make it a part of our style guide that file names shouldn't have spaces?
