Any future plans to allow Conf Page Titles to contain " / + ( or [ ' characters?

We're new users to Confluence and it turns out we use a few keyboard characters *tons* more then we relized. Coming from diff tool set and was not an issue with that software.

Any ideas? Could not find it as a Ticket request so maybe it's just our habits?

All restrictions on characters in page titles have been removed, as of Confluence 4.1, which has just been released.

See http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Confluence+4.1+Release+Notes#Confluence41ReleaseNotes-Useanycharacterinpagetitles

Jon,

Page names have to be legal for a URL. That could not be easily changed.

There has to be a way - even with the basic charaters. Wordpress and Joomla both support it via some subsitutes and such.
