[torquedev] queue naming restrictions?

Hi -- I've been using torque on gentoo linux for a while now, works great.
I'm sorting out a bug in the gentoo package installer, where directories are
removed when a package is upgraded. The only way it seems gentoo can
prevent this is if '.keep' files are added to various directories on
install. This, however, causes an error when pbs_server starts, due to it
parsing the .keep file in server_priv/queues as a queue file.
I'm wondering if there are any current naming restrictions on queues (or
anything else); ie, is it normal for a queue to begin with the '.'
character? And if this is unsupported already, would ppl be open to
patching pbsd_init so that it does not call que_recov() on files with '.' as
the first character?
