This is a good point, but changing PmWiki's default here will 
absolutely break a lot of existing sites that depend on a single 
space for preformatted text.

So, requiring multiple spaces for pre treatment would have to be
left for a local customization.

I wonder if there's something that we could do with <div> and
CSS positioning here... i.e., if we enclosed <pre> somehow
in a <div> that eliminates the width problem...?
