[Dev-luatex] Braced file names for openout

\openin and \input accept file names in braces (well, as <general
text>) while \openout does not:

    luatex '\immediate \openout 12 = {abc} \end'

makes a file named "{abc}.tex" and not "abc".  I'm using LuaTeX,
Version beta-0.79.1 (TeX Live 2014) (rev 4971).  Is this by design or
a bug ?

Best regards,
