At the request of the Tooling subgroup chair, I've attached D1873r0.0 (remove.dots.in.module.names). I'd like to discuss the Tooling relevant parts of it on Saturday.

I would like to restrict this discussion to how tooling is intending to make use of `.` in module names (section 2 of the paper), as the rest of the paper is outside the scope of the Tooling subgroup and this is a very late paper.

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 "~"?
