The question is, are the set of operations similar enough that it makes
sense to try to represent FSSpecs with the same cross-platform class as
paths? If someone has a program written to manipulate paths on Unix will
they be able to apply the same operations on MacOS 9? It might make sense to
manipulate paths on the Mac with this class, since after all they do exist.
I am an old Mac guy, but too old I guess: I've forgotten. BTW, does this
apply to OS X?
