Right. How else was I supposed to change ""'s name in accordance with
the rule, especially as the only thing it says I *can* introduce is
leading or trailing sequences of spaces. So, " " seems to be a
perfectly legal name, although for the purposes of identifying
players, it's equivalent to "  " and "   ", and maybe even "".
