 re: automatic path separator conversion 
 I know you guys have a short runway for 1.0, so auto-pathseparator-
 conversion might make some great low-hanging fruit once you guys get 
 past the 1.0 post-release bug rush.

+The flip side, as I mention in bug #71214, is that the backslash is
+valid character in unix, and if it's transparently changed (as it is
+already in some cases), it causes problems because it's thought to be
+a path separator when really it's a part of the file name.
