The version is HEAD~1, so the only difference from supported version
formats is the internal tilde.

I can't see (yet) how this doesn't work with backup file names. In
particular, it can't be mistaken for a numbered backup file, since it
doesn't end `.~%d~'; on the other hand, both the simple backup suffix
~ and numeric backups suffix `.~%d~' are still correctly stripped by
my modified file-name-sans-versions.
