Files whose names are FOOBAR.in.h are automatically renamed by djtar,
the unpacking utility, to something like FOOBAR.in-h (and will appear
as foobar.in- on plain DOS), so they are no problem.  What I wanted to
avoid were files whose name clash after 8+3 truncation, because these
are not renamed automatically, but need user intervention for
providing an alternative name, something end users will be stumped
