White spaces are not allowed as path element except
FWS in draft-ietf-usefor-article-07.  In 1036, they
also don't look like allowed together with '!'.  As
to inn's local setting, there is no checking to see
if white spaces are included or not(trailing ones
are trimmed, though).

I'm still thinking what we should do;

- innd should trim white spaces from Path header in
  article and spool
- innd should trim white spaces in Path header when
  it's written as 'WP'
- any other?

And how about local setting(pathhost)?  innd and
nnrpd should fail to run in case of white spaces in
pathhost included?
