* Are there any IMAP servers that don't allow names that start
* Is there any reason not to do this?
* If I write about this naming style on my Procmail Quick Start
in this section:
Use Consistent Naming and Formatting Styles
what warnings should I give people?
I know that we shouldn't *have to* deal with ASCII sorting, but
unfortunately my IMAP client of choice doesn't give me much of an
option (but maybe it will in the future, hint hint :-)).
Given it's use as the substitution character for a user's home directory I
can only imagine untold anguish that would cause down the line should other
scripting tools ever want to work with those folders. That some current
servers don't upchuck outright on it does mean much.

You want to combine this "idea" with procmail? Talk about ripe for
compounding the hassles.

And there's no other character that could be used for this purpose?
I play it safe, and always use "0" and "z" for such purposes, e.g.
