I've not looked at the complete code, but the patch '0001-zic-v-...'

- static char const benign[] = ("-./_"
+ static char const benign[] = ("-/_"
register char const *component = name;

I don't see the digits in there; are they handled separately?  Also, what
is the benefit of the parentheses around the string?
