All that I've done is store 'user' keys detokenized, but have a couple
of internal ones that are not. As I said, spaces are also zapped in
'user' keys, so it is possible to get around the problem that way. (The
idea is that the internal keys should be safely hidden so that there is
a free choice of template 'user' keys.) It's just that some recoding
will be needed.
