Feature Request: Reject Apostrophes in Package Names

Hello all,

Casper Hates Apostrophes in Package Names. I encountered this a long time ago, but I forgot and it bit me again. Ever forget? Happened to me.

Composer allow you create a package and use an apostrophe in its file name, and
Casper Admin allows you to add a package which has an apostrophe in its file name. But when it comes time to send that package to a computer with Casper Remote (or, presumably, with a policy, or during imaging), the apostrophe causes problems with the CLI tools Casper employs, and that package is not installed.

So, my feature request is this:

1) Enable Composer to detect and reject apostrophes in package names; i.e., prevent the operator from naming a package iPhoto - iLife '09.

2) Enable Casper Admin t detect and reject apostrophes in package names; i.e., prevent the operator from adding a package named iPhoto - iLife '09.

Please, save me from myself!

That really helps, thank you! We were puzzled as to why iLife '09 wouldn't
install until we re-created the package (and just happened to name it
iLife09).
