UNIX systems have all the disks (and disk-like devices) arranged under a
virtual unified hierarchy. So it's very easy to store UNIX paths as a
string with '/' separators. However, other platforms aren't that simple.
There are different separators, volume separators, and possibly unique types
of data (e.g. versions). So the path objects shouldn't store the path as a
single string that needs parsing, but as a list of intermediate directory
names, the final object, and possibly the volume designator and other data.
