Usernames with spaces and .ssh/config

I have a couple of machines here with ssh running on them.  I am in
the process of setting up a Winblows box to also do some limited sshd
stuff using cygwin, however, the usernames on that machine are set up
with full names such as "George Walker Bush".

If I specify this from the command line within quotes or with \
delimiters before the spaces with -l , it works just fine.  But if I
try to add a 'Username' entry in a .ssh/config file, it will not work.
 I have also tried single and double quotes and backslashes in there
as well with no luck.

I was just wondering if there was any way to include usernames that
use spaces in the .ssh/config file so I don't have to keep typing '-l
"Some Lame User"' and/or rebuild the usernames on the WinXP and Win2K

I still have not received any responses on this and would appreciate
any feedback....
