And this will miss the cases where some code is inbetween that
does not affect \jobname, e.g.:
  "lualatex \def\flag{...}\input test"

And quoting the \jobname should not be necessary, because
LuaTeX supports the {}-syntax with \input, \openin, \openout, ...
Thus the LaTeX kernel macros that mess with file input and output
needs fixed to support spaces. Unhappily this will also change
internal interfaces, because the space is used as end delimiter
of the file name or spaces are removed from file names (\includeonly).
