First, I've used/written these sort of wrapper libraries multiple times and I am impressed! Good job!
Second, I've sometimes needed a "trim path" function, That is to say, given a file path turn it into a directory path, and then take that directory path and "traverse up" one level. I don't see how to it easily other than convert to a known file system, get the string, trim, and create a new path. Seems like you already have a delimiter for the parts of a path. Perhaps a path_iterator is what I need? (Or is it here and I've missed it.)
