I've been putting some though into these issues, as I think there is a
serious need for a library. But the end objective isn't to manipulate
pathnames, it is to be able to perform portable script-like file system
operations. Pathnames are one small part of that.
Put it another way, we have been talking about solutions without defining
the problem requirements.
I've been working on a design document that tries to identify the
requirements. I'll try to post a draft soon.
