+ is the most annoying really. One can type ./ before + files but for
instance midnight commander can be set to use external viewer and
editor. So F4 on files starting with + does not work.
Of course one could always import mc into arch and make an archive
avaliable so people patch their buggy mc :), that seems to be the trend.

Yes , seems really cool to me it points down and it's small suggesting
that the file is lowly and can be ignored :). In fact I started using
files starting with , for temp files in general.
