Alright and all right

I'm a member of SCBWI in the BI region and there has been a discussion on the FB page about when to use the words 'alright' and when to use 'all right'.

I reckon that if you can put another word between the 'all' and the 'right' then you should use the spaced spelling (eg all the right questions) but if you can't then it's the non-spaced version (I'm alright Jack).

What do you reckon?  When should you use the spaced version and why?  When should you use the single word version and why?
