Is it possible to add characters to the UWC Illegal Pagenames Framework?

I've had a fair bit of success with the UWC pulling pages out of MediaWiki, but I notice it trips up on some Wiki pages that have question marks in the title. It appears UWC tries to create a filename with the question mark, which is illegal in Windows/DOS.

The UWC Illegal Pagenames Framework appears to be the logical place to modify question marks, but doesn't appear to have a way of adding additional illegal characters - it appears it can only change a fixed set into other characters.

Is this correct, or is there a way of getting it to recognise additional characters as illegal?

(Of course I could modify the pages in MediaWiki, but would rather avoid it, as unfortunately there are quite a few.)

Hello Christof, Daniel,

Currently UWC is being taken care by the Atlassian Expert Appfusions, it may be worth reaching out to them at

Also there is good doc page concerning UWC and MediaWiki here.
