Something to think about:
 [snoopy:bam] ~ >echo 1.2!pre2-1
zsh: event not found: pre2
while easy to solve by quoting, just make sure what ever character
that is chosen (hopefully) doesn't mess up any existing shell
# causes problems, too:
 [snoopy:bam] ~ >echo 1.2#pre2-1
zsh: no matches found: 1.2#pre2-1
~ seems OK in current versions of zsh (it use to be a problem though).
This is only interactive use, not sure if these will be a problem for
scripts or not.
