The original solution for this issue with %edit was to see if a file
exists at the absolute path of the alias, and if it did, treat the
alias with the spaces as a single command. If there was no file
there, then treat the stuff after the spaces as arguments.

Was this the solution you used for the %ls problem too? Hopefully
these all should be consistent.
