** [tickets:#109] Periods no longer allowed in session names**

In tmux 1.8 and earlier, periods were valid in session names.  I found this 
useful, as I use sessions that map directly to directories on the filesystem, 
and I have projects named things like 'xiongchiamiov.github.com'.

As of tmux 1.9a, attempting to create a new session gives an error:

[$]> tmux new -s a.s
bad session name: a.s

I don't know if this was intentional, but I didn't see it (or anything 
seemingly related) in the changelog.
