(I presume the 92, 93, and 94 aren't really there.)

In the metrics argument of e.g. \installfont, comma is the primary
separator character and space is secondary, so sensitivity to spaces is
normal. Since empty file names don't make sense, it would technically be
possible to gobble a space in that particular position, but none of the
other arguments gobble spaces in that way.
