It does, you just need to put the username in double quotes:

    /present "Ernie and Bert"
    /msg "Ernie and Bert" Don't use spaces in your username!

We used to reject spaces, but people complained, especially for formal
meetings where people are asked to use their full name.  I can add an
option to reject spaces, but the default will remain.

Yeah, that's a good solution.  But it won't get upstream, for the reasons
outlined above.
