Indeed it wasn't discussed but I think that these non-breaking spaces
should be reconsidered.
Typography rules and conventions are language-dependent. For example, in
Hungarian it is not nice to end a line with a sentence-starting
single-letter article. Afaik, English does not have such rules, except
widows and orphans, which are more concerned with aesthetics. It is
reasonable to avoid a line break between FreeBSD and 9.X or similar
cases but probably not for such long terms as Ports Collection.
Actually, it may just hit back because it may make justified paragraphs
very ugly in our print formats.
