I did the code for a linkgrabber button that does the 2 replace but i'm strugling with the equivalent packagizer rule (it would be best done there).

Here is what I tried:
Filename contains ([^A-Za-z0-9\.\-]) then set Filename:<jd:orgfilename:1> works great but the replace multiple spaces by one space has got me confused. I think this means to weed out blocks of two spaces ([^(\s{2,})]) but I don't know how to tell it to replace by 1 space.

(rest not interesting for you raz)

My filename and packagename cleaner custom event (button in linkgrabber). It cleans out all linkgrabber links, selected or not - and there is no ctrl-z or preview so use with some care.

Code for button (for users reading this thread)
//Add your script here. Feel free to use the available api properties and methods
var regex1 = /[^A-Za-z0-9\.\-]/g;
var regex2 = /\s+/g;

//for all packages in linkGrabber
var packs = getAllCrawledPackages();
var newName = "";
for (var j = 0; j < packs.length; j++) {
    var links = packs[j].getDownloadLinks();
    for (var i = 0; i < links.length; i++) {
        newName = links[i].getName().replace(regex1, " ");
        newName = newName.replace(regex2, " ");
