Well, even it's not the central point of the discussion let make this 
assertion more correct. It depends on file system. E.g. JFS 
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JFS_%28file_system%29) abides to this 
rule while very popular ext4 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ext4) does 
not. In addition to NUL character, the latter forbids '/' as well.
