Perhaps I misunderstood your earlier comments [1], but you seemed to
be suggesting that a Boost facility for listing all roots is
unnecessary because Windows drives can be mounted onto a single root.

But just because such a thing is possible doesn't matter. Is there
ever a time that a file system is available only by drive letter --
that is, a separate and distinct root? If so, then a facility for
listing all roots is still necessary in order to accommodate Windows.
