Good point.  If URL-style hex encoding is not to be used, I would
recommend using another character than % too.  Something more easy
on the eye, hopefully.  I'd probably go for "_", but it would mean
encoding another very common character, and we want to keep the
need for mangling filenames to a minimum.  How about "=" or "~"?
