And from the email:
>'#','<','>','[',']','|','{','}',':','¬','`','!','"','£','$','^','&','*','(',')','+','=','~','?',',',';',"'",'@'


Many of these characters are very common in file names (apostraphes,
parenthesis) and absolutely allowed both socially and technically.

I think that GWToolset should simply follow $wgIllegalFileChars and the things
that Title::secureAndSplit blocks (To be specific, only blacklist
'#','<','>','[',']','|','{','}', and ':'). If there really is a need for
additional characters being blacklisted for social reasons (I'm not convinced
there is), then the black list should be configurable on wiki as mediawiki:
namespace message, since social conventions change over time.
