If there is inflight and reserved filenaming scheme already, it could be simply extended for these encoded filenames due to limitations, and every incompatible participant (e.g. the windows users in contrast to the mac users in my example) would see these encoded filenames and could rename the file (as it is only then present for them in contrast to the current situation right now) fitting their local needs and hopefully the problem would then not bounce back into the mac users realm and cause an encoded filename there if the windows user would not select a filename that would be incompatible again with the mac users local limitations.
(maybe like punycode for internantionalised domain names for webbrowsers, ascii7bit representation of punycode would work for all the browsers, and modern browsers would take the puny stuff and represent it as utf8 or whatever details that scheme and standards have and use that stuff to display at least, as far as I understand punycode is that on the dns level everything is still ascii7bit.)
I absolutely prefer to have a file, instead of not having a file. And these encoded or pending filenames would really make it possible to remedy the situation on the filesystem level that the average joe user sees, as not all my syncthing users can handle the syncthing gui (webpage) at all and can only barely cope with a commonly spread out and shared folder and can work through their local file explorer or file finder and whatnot interfaces. Its sad that apparently nobody else sees the need to have a file distributed even with problems in naming a file instead of not having a file at all. Maybe I need to fork over some money or paypal or donation or whatever to get this done, but simply the whole discussion in this thread that apparently the master leaders and coders and developers rather discuss these issues and apparently not seeing the value of it, seems pretty disappointing to me.
where do we donate or finance this project? does it even help to throw money at it or is it a mindset and developers attitude that I am experiencing here in this thread? please tell me honestly if I am causing too much trouble or am discussing in odd or nonpleasant ways to you guys, maybe my standards and experiences differ strongly from you guys, and also your priorities are of course way different from mine and so on. maybe i am even barking up the wrong tree.
thanks and regards.
