Except that genbooks often have spaces in the keys, and this doesn't
work. This was actually discussed quite a bit a few months ago when
Brian was working on some genbooks. I believe the recommendation for
spaces was to use special non-breaking spaces, and these need some
kind of support in the filters. The importers may also be breaking
them, I'm not sure.
