At first glance I'd say it ought to be possible by either manipulating
$MakePageNamePatterns or setting $MakePageNameFunction to a custom
conversion function.  Of these two, easier would be to add an entry to
$MakePageNamePatterns to convert any second and subsequent dots to
hyphens.   If that doesn't work out, then you'll probably need
to create a custom $MakePageNameFunction (and copy a lot of the
code from MakePageName() ).

My first stab at a $MakePageNamePattern entry would be something like:

    '/(\..*)(\..*)$/e' => "'$1' . strtr('$2', '.', '-')"

Hope this helps.
