Much (perhaps even most) of CVS is quite happy with spaces in filenames.
Most of the problems are with interfaces to external scripts or things
like the modules file.  As long as you haven't had problems in the past,
you probably won't have problems in the future.  (Note that what you
created were almost certainly top-level directories, not modules. 
Modules are only created by adding things to the CVSROOT/modules file
and since that file is space delimited, it's not possible to create
modules with spaces in their names.)
