Without boost::filesystem, it is quite common for programs to take a path as
user input and pass it to the OS without caring much if it's valid native
path or not. If it isn't, the OS function call will fail.
I don't think that this common use case would change much if it's ported to
This leads to my questions: if I can store any string into a path object,
how are the semantics of boost::path different from the semantics of a
string? What is the path type invariant? Does it give me any guarantees
about the stored string?
