This is in fact PmWiki's default -- see


where RB05Week14 is displayed as "RB 05 Week 14".  
I'm guessing that a cookbook recipe or local setting is changing
the spacing to something else (the extendmarkup.php recipe notably
does this).  It's all controlled by the $AsSpacedFunction variable,
which is the name of the function to be called when adding spaces
to a wikiword.

They can if you change the $GroupPattern:

    $GroupPattern = '[[:upper:]\\d][\\w]*(?:-\\w+)*';

or even

    $GroupPattern = $NamePattern;
