I don't think so, and anyway, we only use autoconf on Unix-like systems
that use "/".

I'd go ahead and just define the local separator as "/" in configure.in,
and put "\\" in config.hw, which is what config.h is created from on
Windows.

SVN_PATH__URL_SEPARATOR should always be "/", on all platforms.

That's just because we didn't need it -- most of the system-specific
bits are handled by APR, and we want to keep it so. However, we already
use config.h to find the diff and patch programs for the client library.
There's nothing wrong with using it fot the path library, too.
