It should be a feature of core MW, but we are the only project so far that
needs it.

Anyway, to my knowledge, the only way to really know whether a filename is
acceptable or not is to actually try to publish a file with that name. (There
are many different reasons why the server might reject it, and any number of
extensions can use certain hooks. We can't simulate it on the client
effectively.)

This is obviously unacceptable for us, especially since we are working on files
that aren't published yet.

So we will need to write another API method, or, rewrite the appropriate
extensions, to do this properly.

The main extensions I'm aware of are TitleBlacklist and TitleWhitelist.
