It *appears* things like hyphens and underscores are also ignored in 
addition to ignoring spaces. Is that correct?

When I do :

[wwm at Linden]$ mtxrun  --script fonts --list --info --all pattern=MyFont*

  and compare against some existing typescripts I see the filename in 
the typescript is something like:      file:myfontname whereas the 
system filename is /path/to/font/My_Font-Name.otf
