OS-specific checks.

Wouldn't that be rather useles? The OS wouldn't allow you to create such
files in the first place. Maybe some checks when checking
out/updating/exporting. I don't know if a server can use a colon in a
filename today to write to your floppy drive:-)

I this this has been disucssed before. The main reason for to including
these checks is that they must be a project policy. If you have only
Windows developers, you won't have these filenames added. If you are a
mixed environment, the ones who need the check live on that OS that allow
these characters. I think this belongs in a pre-commit hook script.
