host I need access to that has spaces in the user name. I want to set up
a default user name for that host but haven't been able to. Everything
I've tried has failed. I've tried single quotes, double quotes, and
preceding each space with a \.
Escaping the spaces on the command line is easy but it's a pretty long
user name and I don't want to have to specify it on the command line

Re: ssh_config question
Right now, you can't. There's a patch attached to this bug:
which allows you to escape spaces with a preceding backslash, eg:
User John\ Smith
I will probably redo it to allow quotes instead, eg
User "John Smith"

Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
