The default value of valid_punctuation contains a
dollar sign. As at 2003-10-14, this is removed by the
config file parser (since it prefixes variables). The
default should be excaped (\$), and a comment should be
added to the descriptions of valid_punctuation and
extra_word_characters.

    There seem to be some problems with other characters, too.
    Eventually, we should update htcommon/conf_lexer.lxx.

    1. If the last character on the line is a backslash, then
    the following line
    is concatenated *even if* the backslash is "escaped" by
    another backslash

    2. There seems to be no way to escape a back-quote (`).

    Are the problems with any other characters?

    3. A file not terminated with a new line causes a core dump.
