Yes. The name obeys existing rules for a changelist name, for forward
compatibility, and that does allow spaces.

That sounds like you're proposing an alternative syntax for what the
'shelve' command does -- except I'm not sure what you want the 'v2'
option to do here; was that accidental?

I abbreviated a bit; the actual existing syntax for reverting the files
tagged as changelist 'FOO' is:

   svn revert --cl=FOO -R .

(assuming all the files you need to revert are under '.').
