 Microsoft did this with their C runtime to convert '/' -> '\' for 
 DOS/Windows.  This was to make it possible to migrate UNIX file code to 
 DOS/Windows without having users spend forever converting path names.
 I think it would be acceptable to let mono do the opposite.  Then on both 
 platforms either slash would work and everyone would be happy.

+That is just one element of the problem;  The other one is making the
+file system lookups case insensitive, and that may take some work. 
+It is a good idea, but not a 1.0 feature.
