Comment (by hnla):

 > My suggestion is that we remove this behavior altogether,

 Is that possible (no haven't looked at patch yet ) Thought the hyphen was
 because BP grabbed this value/string for url

 WP allows  spaces as this is properly a string and spaces matter not; if
 using username in uri or paths spaces are evil, forbidden, only allowed by
 feckless Windows.

 My point was retain the behaviour but throw up a warning if a space is
 received asking that user transpose space to a hyphen ( guess that is
 changing behaviour though in that BP now doesn't need to perform that
 strreplace itself )

 I thought that Brajesh's little scriptlet did just that which is why I
 opened the ticket.

 I'll try and run patch when I have a minute.
