[elinks-users] Preserving spaces when using protocols?

If I go to "wiki:sue lawley" in ELinks, it takes me to the Wikipedia
search page for "Sue%20Lawley" [sic], which does not include the
article I want.

Is there any way to tweak the protocol to NOT convert ' ' to %20?

I realize that "wiki:sue_lawley" works, but it'd be nice to get ' '
working as well.

Oddly, "google:sue lawley" works fine (and ironically returns her
Wikipedia page as the first result), but I'm guessing this is google
magic, since the protocols look virtually identical:

http://www.wikipedia.org/w/wiki.phtml?search=%s
