Fixes T11902.

  • Periods now work in short names.
  • If you try to name something ".git", no dice.
Test Plan
  • Tried to name something "quack.git", was politely rejected.
  • Named something "quack.notgit", and it worked fine.
  • Cloned Mercurial and Git repositories over SSH with ".git" and non-".git" variants without hitting any issues.

I couldn't figure out what this was talking about after some probing, so I think we're fine. SSH clones with Mercurial definitely work. Possibly we haven't seen the end of this.
