Subject: Re: [boost] [Filesystem] Proposal: make filesystem generic-programming friendly

So basically you suggest to require the filesystem implementation concept
to be able to work with boost::filestystem::path,
but not restrain using a more filesystem-specific version of path, if it
makes sense for this filesystem.
boost::filesystem::path would just be the default path type, but not the
only one usable depending on the filesystem implementation.

Did I understand correctly?

Also, what is your intent with the draft exactly? Do you want to provide
such modifications? (as a PR maybe?)
Or are you asking the maintainer to do it because you don't feel that you
can yourself?
