Summary:  tla should allow more characters in filenames

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.
