I have a patch ready that removes all the new windows specific code in
path.c. There's some small cleanup left to do in the path tests, I added
those as part of the windows path patches but want to keep them now
atleast for uri's and unix paths. I suppose that's what you mean by
resolution?

That's probably the first thing we need to do, standardize the naming.
Some path functions use 'uri' already btw, so I propose to keep using
that term.
