Wed 24 Sep 2003 10:26:36 PM UTC, original submission:  

tla is restrictive of the characters it allows in filenames, (to quote Tom Lord):

"But there's lots of reasons to want to have all kinds of 'funky file names' -- the file system is, after all, a form of database.   File names are a primary key for that database.  Limiting the space of reasonably usable keys is lame."

I think tla should support "funky file names" as well as the filesystem should: supporting spaces and a variety of languages.
