these are two separate issues. one is the invalid characters and two is that
the error messages during build are hidden.

on the first, it seems like it would be better to just lowercase them during
the build.

on the second, the errors need to be parsed and displayed to the user. you can
get all kinds of errors, for example, malformed xml, etc. many of these errors
have nothing to do with illegal file names.(In reply to comment #1)
