Did you know that in the ye old days chown user.group (dot separator) was valid syntax?

This decision was changed when the utility was first standardised in POSIX.2 (1992) to the more known `:` separator to make the utility work with usernames containing a `.` (which is legal).

Fun fact? ALL chown implementations (*BSD's, Linux, Mac OS X) still allow the dot syntax as it's widely used and yet it was deprecated 25 years ago when it first became part of the standard...
