It would be nice to avoid the ugliness of %20 sequences in wiki URLs for each space. One solution would be to allow the url to contain an underscore for each space character and still be able to find the page.
As for potential ambiguity in page names, either the wiki would need to treat the names as identical (so that ambiguous pages could not be created) or it would have to prefer finding a page with more underscore matches. I personally think that the former is preferable, which would mean that if I try to create a page named both "foo_bar" and "foo bar" that I'm told that the page exists. The alterntive is for a request for "foo_bar_baz" to find "foo_bar baz" in preference to "foo bar baz" if "foo_bar_baz" doesn't exist and the other 2 do (due to it having more matching underscores).
