[Duplicity-talk] directory names with spaces (an old chestnut?)

I know this subject has been discussed before 
(http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/duplicity-talk/2010-07/msg00017.html) but 
I'd like to get the 'up-to-date' answer, as it were, which I haven't been able 
to find - sorry if I missed it.  I can't restore directories which have spaces 
in the names, whether I use quotes (single or double) or an escape character.  
I get a message which says something along the lines of "Expected 2 args, got 
3".  I'm using duply as a wrapper so an example command is: duply fileset fetch 
'fileset/files/this directory' '/home/restore' .  I've also tried duplicity 
'file:///archive_location/fileset/files/this directory' '/home/restore'.

Can this actually be done or should I simply eliminate spaces from the names of 
directories before I backup?  Obviously I won't be naming any new directories 
with spaces in the name.
