The latest version of WorkflowPlugin ($Rev: 5325 (2009-10-19) $) doesn't work for topics whose name is not a wiki word.

Example: I've created a topic called WorkflowTest where I set the variable WORKFLOW to the topic name of the workflow definition. As expected, this topic is now under workflow control and I'm able to change the workflow status. If I rename this topic to Test, the topic is no longer under workflow control although the META information is still the same. The same happens if I create the topic Test from scratch.

In there is a check for a valid topic name: return undef unless Foswiki::Func::isValidTopicName( $topic ); (around line 85). This check fails for non-wikiword topics. Is this check reasonable?

This was reported again and after due consideration, I decided to relax the constraint on workflow topic names being a valid wikiword. They must still pass the valid topic check, though.
