[CDBUG-talk] OT: script help

Hey guys,

I'm writing a little sed script to append a few lines to a file and I've run
in to a problem. The script looks like this:

#! /bin/sh

find ./ -type f -name 'FileToFind' -print | while read i
 sed -i[bak] '$a\
stuff to append\
more stuff to append' $i

It works fine in testing, however in practice the absolute path to the
file(s) contains a directory with a space in the name (Thanks, Apple...).
Anyone know of a way to have the path sent to sed in quotes?
