Hi Beman,

Thanks for proposing a new version of the filesystem library which is
very useful. I have tried to run the regression tests with the beta
release of cygwin 1.7 but I obtained little success (look at
bronf-1.7). I wanted to start testing the wide char thing as they say
it is now supported (but only g++ 4.3.2 is currently installed). I
suspect something does not work anymore in the testing procedure with
the new cygwin but I would need some help to understand what to look
for. Nearly all the tests are blank, what does this mean?
