Spaces in path

Hi,
I love this simple tool - use it a lot for getting the long UNC path for server locations
Only one small suggestion.

Often when getting a path the path contains spaces (I know.. bad path creation) and the link ends up broken. To get around this I used the 'Custom Commands' and set up a custom' Copy Long UNC path' with Find/Replace {space} with {%20}. Maybe not the cleanest but it works.

My suggestion - would it be possible to include this as an option in the 'Advanced" tab as: 'Replace spaces in path with a "%20"

So for example:
\\corpnet\data\Local\Codeplex\Path Copy Copy\Path Copy Copy   
becomes:
\\corp\data\Local\Codeplex\Path%20Copy%20Copy\Path%20Copy%20Copy  
and the complete link remains intact.

I dare say other users have come across this also.

Sorry for the long delay to respond to this. I'll add a work item to implement this.
