Something to think about:

[607] [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:

[608] [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.
