Stick to the **rule** of NEVER including blanks.

Recently Jason modified the parser behaviour in some cases to strip out any
blanks in the x=y strings but it doesn't apply in all cases (parsing
variations between lone strings like KeyLinks and linked lists like
Fieldsxx properties).

The blanks are *not* supposed to be "optionally allowed". My own view is
that mods to "help" sloppy programmers generally cause more problems than
they solve.
