I'm so sorry you got bit by that. Would you be willing to accept a commit bit to help improve Jifty? - I just need the output of htpasswd -n (off list ;)

> Hello list,
> I was surprised to find my template/action silently fail when using monikers with a dash, e.g. "01-something". Replacing the dash with an underscore fixed 
the problem.

> "A moniker is an arbitrary-length nonempty string containing no semicolons."
> This should be updated to forbid dashes.
> Moreover, Jifty->web->new_action should warn (or die even) if moniker name contains forbidden characters. Currently, there's no warning, the action(s) just 
don't run.
> Test results: (using Jifty::Test::WWW::Mechanize)
> "0_bottom": ok
> "0-bottom": silent failure
> "0;bottom": ok (surprise!)
