One thing you might consider is using the numerical value of the  
letter for the file name. You could have two little handlers to make  
it transparent:

on writeFile pChar, pData
   put pData into url ("file:" & chaToNum(pChar))
end writeFile	

function readFile pChar
   return url ("file:" & charToNum(pChar))
end readFile
