 5.3 Conventions regarding transmission of file names
 In most contexts, `/' is used to separate directory and file names in
 filenames, and any use of other conventions (for example, that the user
 might type on the command line) is converted to that form.  The only
 exceptions might be a few cases in which the server provides a magic
 cookie which the client then repeats verbatim, but as the server has
 not yet been ported beyond unix, the two rules provide the same answer
 (and what to do if future server ports are operating on a repository
 like e:/foo or CVS_ROOT:[FOO.BAR] has not been carefully thought out).
    Characters outside the invariant ISO 646 character set should be
 avoided in filenames.  This restriction may need to be relaxed to allow
 for characters such as `[' and `]' (see above about non-unix servers);
 this has not been carefully considered (and currently implementations
 probably use whatever character sets that the operating systems they
 are running on allow, and/or that users specify).  Of course the most
 portable practice is to restrict oneself further, to the POSIX portable
 filename character set as specified in POSIX.1.
