Just to throw another monkey wrench in to the mix, I'll point out that
':' is legal in *nix filenames, too.  People just tend not to use it
because it would break too much stuff.

The gulf between 'can' and 'should' is huge. ;-)

On the other hand, I support the idea of using : and ; for file list
separators, as suggested above.
