pin-externals fails to handle spaces properly

While trying out the new 'pin externals' feature, I found a problem:

if the external definition has spaces in them for the local path,
something like this:

^/branches/test1 'ext with spaces'

then that will get changed to
^/branches/test1_at_1234 ext with spaces

which basically breaks the externals value.

Also, I get a segfault in copy.c, line 1331:
           info->src_path = svn_relpath_join(parent_info->src_path,
because in my first tests, the 'parent_info->src_path' is NULL.
Haven't found out why yet, just wanted to mention it.

And one more:
The 'externals_to_pin' hash that's passed to svn_client_copy7() is
supposed to contain all the externals that should be pinned.
But it appears that it must contain *all* externals as keys, even those
that should not be pinned. In that case, only the array (hash value) has
to be empty. Maybe the doc string should indicate that? Or maybe the
feature is wrong and a key path that's not in the hash should be treated
as not-to-be-pinned?
