It works just fine and prevents problems with invalid file names under some server configurations, which will lead to inaccessible images. I did replace the plugin's own sanitization with a custom function though, in order to not just replace characters that are out of range with hiphens, but to also transform the file name into lowercase, replace characters with diacritics by their simple forms and join sequences of hiphens into a single character.
