This precludes us from using the assembly in mscorlib.dll. It could
potentially be useful to use there -- say to let us write nunit tests
that poked at internals.

See http://blogs.msdn.com/junfeng/archive/2004/09/14/229254.aspx about
how there is support for handling commas in file names. Your code would
break under this.

Finally, comparisons should be done with the invariant culture.
