Let me rephrase: people with spaces in their path to their editor
should escape them. That will give us an easy way out. The
majority of the people having to do that will be on windows,
since a common install path is "C:\Program Files\<whatever>".
However, if your editor is in your path, as simple
EDITOR="notepad.exe" (or whatever you like) will do.
