Excuse the non-threaded response, but I have a "general" questions... For
the proponents of keeping "." in the module name: Why is "." special? Are
the reasons for keeping "." also applicable to allowing other characters?
Would it be reasonable to add say the following set of characters to be
allowed in module names: "," (comma), "-", "|", "=", "[", "]", "*", "&",
"^", "%", "$", "@", "!", and "~"?
