You can embed hex escapes in strings (except \x00). The value(s) that
you embed will depend on the character encoding used on you platform. If
this is UTF-8, or some other ASCII compatible encoding, \x20 will work:

> "foo\x20bar"
[1] "foo bar"

For other locales, you might try charToRaw(" ") to see the binary (hex)
representation for the space character on your platform, and substitute
this sequence instead.
