But that punts on a number of issues (like symbolic links,
normalization, the semantics of .., and so on), and also doesn't
provide a number of important operations.  It also doesn't solve any
of the hard problems.  Nowhere else does Alan Perlis's epigram on
strings ring so true in practice.

I'll try to type up a proposal as Marc suggested, but it will take a
while, what with the flurry on SRFI 50 and other stuff.
