I don't want to start an argue, sice this bug/feature doesn't affect my work.
But just my 2 cents:

1) The operating system / file system basically decides which names are
   permitted. And in times of luatex and unicode it's a pity that file names
   with international characters aren't supported. All other programs can cope
   with that.

2) I often use automatically generated graphics like
   graph.1.pdf
   graph.2.pdf
   graph.3.pdf ...
   According to the documentation and Hans these file names aren't permitted,
   since dots and numbers aren't allowed. However when I include the complete
   names with extention it works.


Regards
Marco
