Since 2012 Git fast-export quotes filepaths that contain spaces [1].

The consequence is that weird filenames are created.  This happened to
me while importit the gitit repo [2] into darcs (ended with a "data
folder for instance).

Darcs should detect the quotes and remove them (as does, eg, fossil [3]).
