Is there a limit to the number of characters we can use to name the "set" command variables?

For example, will this work:
Fetcher[set{this_is_a_really_long_set_command_variable_name,dont + you_agree}]



Which punctuation marks are allowed/not allowed in the variable names? Here are some ... ~!@#$%^&*()_+`-=|[];':",./<>? <space> character

I use the following rules although stockfetcher seems loose to enforce these in their lexer and more strict in other cases:

- Variable names should start with [a-z] or [A-Z] to be valid.
- Variable name can contain [0-9] or _

You may find other cases that work most of the time.
