      Description

      See http://jthink.net/jaikozforum/posts/list/14809.page

      On Linux, if you have an album, artist, or track name that starts with a period and you create a folder structure based from it, you'll end up with a hidden directory, as this is the convention for hiding files and folders in Linux. Can we prevent this? Just allow replacing it with another character. I use "_" but I guess it could be something else or user selected. Dashes are also a problem because many command line programs see a dash as the beginning of an argument such as -h for help. Neither of these things make the files unusable since there are ways to get around both issues, but it's still rather inconvenient.
