[xep-support] PDF-links to file with id containing dot do not work

I've noticed that pdf-to-pdf links in PDFs generated by XEP do not work if
the id in the link contains a dot.

To test:

<fo:basic-link external-destination="url(file:GEN-1.7.pdf#test)">GEN 1.7

^^^ works

<fo:basic-link external-destination="url(file:GEN-1.7.pdf#test.1)">GEN 1.7

^^^ does not (Adobe Reader says: Could not open the file

(Obviously I took care to have the corresponding id in the target file
every time)

It seems that the bit after 'file:' gets interpreted as a filename in
itself. I tested this in OSX with Preview and Adobe Reader and in Windows
with Adobe Reader (in case it was a system thing), but got the same result.
