Possibly. I really don't like the idea of having directives turn on and
off certain behaviors WRT this stuff. It just doesn't seem like a good
idea. It seems certain to me that we should be able to determine what
filenames are legal, and which are not, and stick to it without causing
problems (of course, implementation may be another issue).
