Some filesystems don't support commas.  I know that my parents' Windows box 
doesn't, so I can guarantee that either FAT32 or NTFS are not comma-friendly, 
and both are used by many users for collections.

Obviously this isn't a huge problem at the moment, but if Amarok is ported to 
other platforms with KDE4 this very well might become an issue.  So maybe 
it'd be good to just use a different character from the start?

I use ^, which works for my parents' computer, and isn't likely to be found 
anywhere else in the filename.  But if you decide to change it you should 
make sure that whatever you pick works for all the common filesystems (and if 
possible, the not-so-common ones, like UFS for FreeBSD, etc. -- probably not 
a problem since really it's Windows that can't deal with all characters).
