Dear Thomas

I understand, that it's not a good idea, and I've seen similar issues on the list (http://www.ntg.nl/pipermail/ntg-context/2010/052339.html).
I ran into this by making a deb package of a software (that includes context files) with a version that have a "~" in it, and therefore it makes a folder name having this character and context fails.

So i guess the answer is then, no.
