I have considerable sympathy for spaces in filenames since they are not
only supported but virtually mandated by the most ubiquitous
operating system that we have today.  What is not clear to me
is why quotes might be expected to work when we are dealing
with TeX.  Surely if a space character is to be represented in
a filename within a TeX source, that character should be
represented using TeX notation such as :




Unfortunately neither of these appear to work
within the context of a %& pragmat in TeX Live 2011.
