That isn't desirable, since it opens up a host of cases where
an infinite number of names can map to a resource.  I think it
would be better to find where the "." is being added, since that
sounds like a bogus thing to do in any case.  The only one I can
think of is where "./" is prefixed for relative URI processing,
but that should be removed before any file operation.
