I can only try ;-) But it won't happen until after next week. From tonight
on I'll be mostly offline preparing for the GDC conference which is why I
wanted to get this code in now... to give you a chance to play/break it.

It should... can't say I tested it ;-) But I can't see a problem...

$(<) located at "sub/dir", and $(>) located at "../.." it should procude
this path: "../../../.."

And if $(<) is located at "..", it should produce the minimal: ".."

But yes, please try and break it ;-)
