Do we? I don't know of any platform that supplies C++ friendly pathname
manipulation. And, while I'm sure there are others, the only object oriented
one that I've seen is the Java File class. It also appears that many of us
have written pathname manipulation classes which implies a general need. For
myself, while it certainly depends on the kind of projects you work on, I've
gotten more reuse out of my pathname class then anything else I've written.
