fstab mounting cifs shares with spaces in the name

One of those evil things I run into is that people like to make shares with a space in the name.  It’s not quite a banishment to one of the circles of hell offense, but I’m pretty sure you get some time in purgatory for it. So in order to fix it in fstab change that space to a \040

//WinFileServer/Share\040With\040Space /share/WTFWindowsAdmin cifs guest,domain=DOMAIN 0 0
