I keep the folder on the Desktop (not a great idea but not that bad 
either) and add some symlinks (to scribble, mzc and mzscheme) in ~/.bin 
which I add to the path. This is actually scripted so I can easily 
switch between different versions. (I symlink the binaries to 
~/.bin/mzscheme-372 and than links one of these to plain ~/.bin/mzscheme.)

So I guess you're doing it the right way.

PS. I got used to spaces in file names since they look pretty in the 
Finder and I rarely use the shell for file managment these days (to my 
own suprise and despite the fact I always have at least several 
terminals opened).
