is it within the scope of physfs to sort out the differences between
window's file system and more sane file systems? for example, would a
standardized mapping from windows style file names ("c:\folder\file.ext") to
unix/osx ("/folder/file.ext") be worthy of adding to physfs? obviously,
there would be some issues in how you'd deal with drive letters, but by
folding that into physfs, perhaps a reasonable standard could be achieved.
by incorporating such conversions, it would also make sense for enumeration
of "/" to return drive letters access points (whatever they may convert to)
to mirror unix's behavior of returning mounted file systems. this implies
that converting from the windows filename "c:" should probably be someting
like "/driveC" or some other "top-level" looking drive name. or maybe "c:"
isn't even really the top level... windows is a bit convoluted in this
beyond the scope?
