Re: the @ syntax - date format

Hi Patrik,

It is my understanding that all characters except the file separation
character (/) is allowed in a filename under *nix. I have seen a
number of characters used to separate versions from filenames in the
past.

         file:version
         file;version
         file@@version
         file%version
         file<version>
         file[version]

It has always been the case that those characters were legal under
most *nix filesystems.

I like the idea Hontvari proposed that only the last "@" on the
filename is considered in looking for a revision and that adding one
to the end of a file means that all of the previous characters must be
the filename.

        -- Mark
