dev build 200407151800

   When I try adding a new library using the
Library Manager and I have a space in the library
name, Netbeans complains my library name contains
invalid characters. But look at the default
libraries that ship with Netbeans, most of them
contain spaces in their name. I expect to be able
to use spaces in the library names too.

AFAIK this is as designed; library names cannot contain ' '.

Libs shipped with the IDE may have display names distinct from the
code name, which can contain any character. There is no plan to have
such a facility for user-created libraries. More likely to confuse and
distract a user than be helpful, I think.

UI spec silent on the issue:
