It already does this -- the saved filenames are processed to exclude any
characters that aren't alphanumeric, hyphens, spaces, or dots, and
leading/trailing non-alphanumeric characters are stripped.  Thus the 
resulting filename always begins and ends with an alphanumeric character,
or else is an invalid filename.
