I finally found some time to start hacking namespace.(c|h) to make it use regexps.

My first patch changes the over_archive_name so it uses a regexp defined in namespace.h to validate archive names. The regexp is a modified version of what was proposed by Jan Hudec, it allows for weird but rfc valid email addresses , however it still requires an alphanum at the start of both strings on each side of the @, thus imposing a (smaller but not null) restriction on valid addresses. This should prevent bug 72 from hitting too hard for the moment.

Next step will convert over_base_name, over_version and over_patch_level to use regular expressions too.

Then I will try and see which files also do namespace validation of their own and modify these so they use the namespace.(h|c) functions. This should also correct bug 72 and make finetuning namespace easier.

You may get this patch here for review (this is my first patch against the tla tree):
