Hello and thank you for developing Stow.  I just began using version 2.2.2 with Perl v5.24.1 and noticed the stow 
directory name is not allowed to begin with a period (e.g. ".stow" as opposed to "stow").  Stow 
gives an error that reads "WARNING: skipping protected directory ." and immediately aborts operation.  Is 
this intended behavior?  If so, what is the rationale?  I was unable to find any mention of "protected" 
directories in the man/info pages.

Take care.
