I think that a better place to munge the name would be in the
safe_fname() routine in utils.c (which already munges newlines
characters into question marks).  The reason I didn't change
any other characters was because I feared that it would mangle
foreign filenames that use high-bit characters.  I'd want some
feedback from such users before accepting such a patch.
