Hi Jeff,

I was afraid this would become an issue eventually.  I've been hesitant to 
just use md5 keys as moodbar filenames (as Rich suggested) because then you 
have no idea which moodbar belongs to which file by looking at it.  But it's 
true that the current naming scheme is kind of a hack.  

Best thing for the moment is probably to write a function that returns the 
preferred separator (',' in UNIX); if we port to other systems, that can be 
controlled by configure.
