I would invite you to try it first. We use unstable sorting just like
before, which means "ba an" will match "banana" before "anbana", and
it is very rare that you intend to actually match whitespace. (I've
never needed to, ever.) With dmenu_run, for instance, do you have
programs with spaces in the name? No. Do you have URLs with spaces in?
It's unlikely.

So being able to avoid typing "gnome-vo" to get up
"gnome-volume-control" (yeah, I have to use Gnome on one machine),
instead you type "g vo". Want to match a URL on a given site? Instead
of typing "" (or typing "hg" and scrolling down
30 items), type "hg t". You have no idea how much more efficient this
makes you.

Give me a situation where literal whitespace is more useful than token
