Shell comment screw.  E.g.:

        % tla revisions -s tla--devo#help-messages--1.3

would mean, to some shells:

        % tla revisions -s tla--devo

So, ick.

People who have followed me on this list as I piss and moan about 
shells that take over new meta-characters (I'm not looking at any but
the initials Z. S. H. come to mind as a suitable example) may be
starting to realize why I object to shells taking over characters that
would otherwise be just swell to use in filenames.
