Snippet names

I was trying to have snippet names like
my-snippet, my:snippet
This does not work, because the function insert in modules/textadept/
uses word_left_extend() to select the snippet name. This function
stops at ':', '-' etc.

As I workaround I inserted the following (around line 314)
buffer.word_chars = "" --remove chars that mark word endings
buffer:set_chars_default() --restore default

Is there an easier/better way to do this? Is there any reason why
snippets name like this shuldn't be allowed? If not, I think it would
be nice If this could be included in 2.1.
Of course, the snippet names have to be declared as follows
snippets.html = {
  ['a:test'] = "a test snippet",
  -- because the Lua short cut notation is not possible
  test = '...'
