[tex-live] Bug#433455: /usr/bin/pdftex: $TEXEDIT default doesn't cope with spaces in filenames

Regarding filenames containing spaces and the TEXEDIT et al. values:

1) is there any reason not to change the compile-time default in
   web2c/c-auto.in?  If you want to add the definitions in the Debian
   texmf.cnf, that's fine, of course, but I don't see why the default
   shouldn't change also.

2) wouldn't '' be better than ""?  What if the filename contains (say) a $?
