Yes.  We've already renamed files that had : in their names.

This is not just for Windows's sake, BTW: Apple's HFS and MacOS Extended
file systems are case retentive but not case sensitive.

We should restrict filenames in the source tree (and in the installed
system) to the POSIX portable filename character set ([A-Za-z0-9._-] in
the C/POSIX locale) and avoid gratuitously long names.
