I'm sure I read somewhere that, "space savers" should only be used on the rear wheels. So, should a front blow, you then have to replace that with a rear wheel first, which is a lot of faffing about.

That is certainly usually 'suggested' on front wheel drive cars.  I don't think it is a legal requirement? 

Some cars (e.g. Mercedes SLK) have rear tyres that are too big to go on the front, but that is a rear wheel drive car.  It has a single sized space saver that is stored flat (i.e. un-inflated) can replace any wheel.  An electric pump is provided.  The problem arises in that the (removed) punctured wheel won't fit in the wheel well in the boot and barely fits in the boot at all ........ a problem if you have luggage.

And yes.
