[TSVN] Tag/Branch name checking suggestion.

Using TSVN I created a Branch with a meaningful name that happened to
included a colon
It was entered into the repository without any noted problems.

However, when I tried to update so as to create the folder locally and
receive the branch contents I received an error message,
(exact wording forgotten) to the effect that the proposed folder name
was illegal.

So I thought it might be worth having a "Windows file system naming
convention" sanity check built into those dialogs the allow user input
to hand type stuff before it gets submitted to the repository.
It might not be necessary to prevent the entry being submitted, a
warning and backout might be sufficient.
