Thanks for the new script!  The output is clearly more useful now for
scripts, and there is less room for error, such as in the Emacs Lisp
that I have been writing.  Of course, I have adjusted my own output
according to your changes.

Replacing "." with "-" is good since it easy to reconstruct, as you
have suggested.  I have overlooked "_", so thanks for addressing that.
"_" is not as easy as "." since it could be at many other places besides
the last hyphen.  Of course, we have few options for "_" other than "-".
We already have the biggest improvements, so I will make just make a
minor observation.

An option for "_" such as "---" is ugly, but since it would show up in
only markup, the rendered wiki page *appearance* would not suffer at all
just as in the "--" case.  "---" is practically unambiguous since "-/"
and "/-" rarely occur in whole path names--I found no such path on my
system.  A URL with "---" would look weird, but it would be less
confusing than "-", since its very unfamiliarity signals to anyone
editing markup that it is substituting for another character, just as
"--" does.

However, I can understand why some may feel that "---" is just too
weird, so I am happy with just "-". :)
