Allowing people to upload files to a server should always be
scrutinized carefully, so PmWiki tends to err on the conservative
side here and restricts filenames to things that would be
considered very safe. Non-alphabetics are often not safe. :-)
At the moment there's not an easy way to allow things outside
of the range of alphanumeric characters, but I'll see about
adding a configuration option for it if you need it.
