That's beside the point. I don't like the principle of disallowing
some pathnames, regardless of how silly or seldom used they are. I
can live with the system not being able to version control files or
directories called '.svn', since obviously the WC needs some name for
the storage of its metadata. But adding '.' to the list of forbidden
names when it's easy not to seems evil.
