The point is that there are certain Operating Systems, and their
filesystems (that shall remain nameless) that do not allow certain
characters, and bitch about it in almost every occasion. If they find
such a file (f.e. in a samba share), they pretend it doesn't exist.

I am sure that many people would like to remain compatible to that, for
many reasons, like because they are forced to work in such enviroments.
