      Description

      Description of problem:
      Unable to add a host principle to a group, the acl policy file fails to load and prevents qpidd from running.
      I guess this is partly due to us not figuring out what is exactly allowed for group and usernames.

      How reproducible:
      Fails every time.

      Steps to Reproduce:
      1. Add a host or service principle to a group in the acl file. Something like
      this will suffice:
      group somegroup host/somemachine.example.com@EXAMPLE.COM

      Actual results:
      Failure to start. Error message is:
      Daemon startup failed: Could not read ACL file ACL format error:
      /etc/qpid/policy.acl:25: Name "host/somemachine.example.com@EXAMPLE.COM"
      contains illegal characters.

      Expected results:
      Should load and parse the group cleanly.
