This may change from file system type to file system type used. So
determining the full range of problem characters can be time consuming and
error prone.

Yes I would like it also, but we need a workable solution that will be
accepted and implemented by the Cyrus developers.

The ANNOTATEMORE patch was submitted almost a year ago and it still has not
been incorporated into the main server. We can continue to customize Cyrus,
but at some stage the gulf between the customized version and the main
stream version will become to big to maintain.
