oh i am thinking about spaces in filenames, and feel the ash of special cases and complexity falling over my bright clean code
@mala git doesn't fully support newlines in filenames and I have users who file bugs on my software (not git) about this
The bigger issue is whether you _should_. Seriously, I get spaces in filenames, but newlines? That's going to break _much_ more than spaces, and without them a whole bunch of naive shellscript suddenly becomes correct (`ls | something` or `find | something` without "-print0").
I think that may be the only part of git that uses a line based protocol and does not support -z. It would be worth fixing if you care about newlines in filenames.
