Only focussed buttons react on the space bar (and they do so already). The default button does that then, too. It also always reacts on the enter key, however.

I wouldn't like this change, as it undermines the clear meaning of the space bar to something a bit more confusing.

What about making default button selected by default if it's the only button, would it be possible?

We could do so for BAlerts (otherwise it would be up to the application in question), but frankly, I don't know what advantage this should have over pressing enter.
