> There are a number of issues and things which can be cleaned up related to PartitionNameWhitelistPreEventListener.
> * It's an event listener, but it really doesn't need to be given that the regex whitelist
is configurable, it could just be a utility method.
> * It's not run when a partition is renamed, so partitions with invalid characters can
be created in this way.
> * There's no easy way to check if a partition contains invalid characters before creating
it and seeing if it fails.
> Most importantly, when a dynamic partition contains an invalid character, the directory
for this partition is created, and the data is moved into it, but the partition fails to be
created leaving an orphan directory.
