IMO in C++ .NET it's not good idea to use "windows.h"'s plain C functions because
someday Microsoft will call them all deprecated or current implementation will not
allow make client's code purely managed. .NET implementation of boost::filesystem
will make usage of library more safe.
Plus, .NET implementaion will possibly work on other platforms than Windows
where such classes are available. Actually I don't know any, but I believe Microsoft
or somebody else will find a way to do it.
So, may be add one more implementation?
Sooner or later it should be done.
