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.
