I intend to modify the path library so that "." only occurs explicitly
in one or two places Then if anyone fixes APR to handle "", or someone
(an AmigaOS user?) wraps all the Subversion APR calls, changing "." to
"" should be simple.

In the meantime I don't care about this AmigaOS restriction. Do we
have any AmigaOS users, or are you raising a purely hypothetical
