In Delphi 2007, I use LIB Prefix in Project Option setting to let compiler compile package library file with prefix added to the file name.

I used to put a dot (.) to split the prefix and package name. (e.g.: SQL.MyPackage.bpl where SQL. is prefix)

However, Delphi 2009 does not allow me to do so.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Delphi 2009 IDE
2. Click File | New Package
3. Click Project | Options...
4. Select "Description" page, enter "SQL." in LIB Prefix and press OK
5. A dialog prompt "Name cannot contain any of the following characters: < > : * | ? * . \ /"
Do not use dot (.) in LIB Prefix in Delphi 2009 but this is perfectly fine with Delphi 2007 and prior version.
