 As a side-note to the request, you can change your local psfu fonts
using psftools (from freshmeat if your distro doesn't supply it):
txt2psf to reproduce the font in a text form ('-' for blank pixels,
'#' for lit pixels),

 edit it to add more characters to the space glyph - e.g.

Unicode: [00000020];[000000a0];[0000202f];

 (to add U+202f to an existing U+00a0).

 and then txt2psf to convert the altered file to a psfu font.

 I was interested to see your request, and _surprised_ that you have
this character mapped on your keyboard.  I thought people would just
type a regular space - shows how little I know.
