Subject Re: windows build hell

Of course you can create a file with "." as the initial character in  
Windows... how do you think the ~/.m2/ directory gets created?

_Windows Explorer_ might not like to allow that... but that does not  
mean that it is not possible to do so... its just crappy microsoft  
software trying to be intelligent and ending up being dumb as  
rocks... again.
