remove internal whitespace from pasted-in URIs

Launchpad Bug:


from the mailing list, we think it would be a good idea to have the tahoe "wui" remove internal spaces from URIs that get pasted in to form elements. This would make tahoe easier to use on filecaps that are passed around email, when the email client (or a mailing list manager) tries to word-wrap the long line and inserts whitespace in the process.

For the record, I was pasting the emailed text right into my location bar. But stripping space on the form elements is probably good too.

I imagine the appropriate response would be a permanent redirect to the fixed url (as opposed to doing the conversion internally).
