Maybe a regular expression could be used to find
instances where the spacing needs to be changed, a la
quotestr?  "([\.?!])(([]'")}>])|(  ))" at nano's search
prompt, minus the surrounding quotes, seems to work in my
preliminary testing.  Or would adding something like this,
along with an equivalent command-line option and nanorc
entry, break the feature freeze?  (Not to mention, what
should be done if regexp support is unavailable?)
