Alternatively, you can use the Cygwin approach, where the Windows-reserved
characters are mapped into U+FF00 through U+FF7F, which are legal but
improbable Unicode characters. There is no law that says the names of
files in the working copy have to be exactly the same as on the server,
just that there be a bidirectional mapping between them.
