Best practices for automatically removing spaces from keys...

I'm curious what people think the best practices are regarding spaces
in keys. In libmemcache(3), I pass spaces right through to the wire
and am not too terribly happy about that. What is the best
alternative? I'm thinking that replacing it with '_' would be more
appropriate, or even (char)254 since that should fail isspace(3) and
would be reasonably unique enough to allow (char)254 to be mapped back
to a space (yeah, I know non-ascii keys will break, but...). Thoughts?
