This is never a priority. The only documented way to move databases is via
slapcat/slapadd. I'm perfectly fine with a Windows-specific special case that
simply maps all forbidden characters to control-characters, or some other
equally obscure approach. (E.g. map all forbidden characters to the same
character.) The typical Windows admin will never see the raw filenames anyway.
