We did have \msg_space:, \msg_two_spaces: and \msg_four_spaces:. The
argument for getting rid of them in that form was that they were not
really functions, so using \c_space_tl seemed equally valid.

With the implementation we have now, you can use "\ " for a space, but
there is an argument for a semantic 'code indent'. So \msg_indent: would
seem to be reasonable.
