+Path separators are part of file system and/or operating system 
+specifications. Neither Mono nor .NET Framework should change path 
+separators as they are doing this currently.
+It's the applications responsibility to be platform independent just 
+like the runtime.
+You can (and should) use Path.Combine to combine two paths because 
+it takes care about using the right path separator, does not append 
+a second path separator if path1 ends with a path separator and 
+returns path2 it it's an absolute path.
+You can (and should) use Path.PathSeparator instead of \ or / when 
+building paths without Path.Combine.
