You can use:

	. 	,	^	:	|	@	%	_	?

"_" has the advantage that it's currently allowed in the middle of 
identifiers but not at the begining, "." is so unobtrusive as to be lost
occaisionally, perhaps ':' or '|' would be better?  I don't like '@' or 
'%', those seem likely to obscure the typename a bit.
