World Names (Configurable additional filename chars and Versioning)

Please note:

Folders are already supported! You just need to create them manually.

It might be useful if everyone could configure additional allowed character for level/file names (on his responsibility of course!)

I am extensively using "+" in my regular naming tactic - for example "S01-001-new-iron-source+blue-pack-attempt"
I am not sure about cross-platform acceptability of "+", so I didn't propose enabling "+" in general.

Maybe it's not a personal white list, but rather a savegame name, stored in the file. The filename itself is converted to valid characters only. So everyone can type in whatever he wants his savegame called and the the actual file sytem remains consistent.

True, copying minecraft would be a good idea here.

With an in-game rename button that would change both directory and in-save name.
(I really hate that minecraft changes only one of them)

I think this targets directly the concept of world names. Which is in general nothing else then versioning of worlds into a repository.
