In Linux, it quite legal to have a '*' character anywhere in a in a
filename.  In Linux, there are only two characters that are not allowed to
appear in filenames: '/' and '\x00'.

Using '*' as part of a filename does requires that you escape it if
writing in a language that regards it as a special character
(e.g. Bash or the 're' pattern language).  However, Linux doesn't
care, and neither does Python.

That seems a bit low to me.  And don't forget the 4 hour minimum...
