In most cases when we write codes by hand, I know this feature is almost 
useless. But for automated or generated codes like example I had given in 
another email, this feature will help alot.

You don't need to hyperbola my suggestion. Everybody knows we don't need those 
inside an identifier name, those are not even a name by the way. Name is a text, 
and most people (except programmers) can't understand why a space char can't be 
accepted as part of a name.

This is just a suggestion anyway, it means can be accepted or rejected. I can 
accept any conclusion/decision from the FPC core development team. So, you don't 
need to over-react your responds. Just give your reasonable arguments, no matter 
you're agree or disagree with me. :)
