nginx accepts any character in URL except space. I do not think that
unescaped spaces are common: I have just seen www.rambler.ru's last
400,000 requests. There are 50 line with 400 errors and no one with space.
Probably these spaces are bugs in mobile phones.
Apache 1.3 returns 400 for such URLs too, while modern Apache2 accepts them.
