Sorry to call you out on this but you're spreading misinformation.
F:/blah is as much a Windows path as is F:\blah is.  Open you cmd.exe
and type ``dir F:/blah'' to see that I'm correct.  It is only some
stupid API like CreateProcess that insist on \ instead of / for the
path delimiter.  Nearly everything else works with / instead of \.
