in thread File::Find and replacing spaces in filenames.

Because it's unnecessary. Why would you want to perform operations in your code that weren't necessary? Would you write a hello world program like this:

use strict; use warnings; use 5.012; if ("hello world" =~ /hello/) { print 'hello'; } if ("hello world" =~ /world/) { print " world\n"; } --output:-- hello world

That program unnecessarily uses program resources, and therefore it is bad programming style.
