Thanks for the tip, Jeff... I don't see `posixpath' documented in the
Python library reference

   http://www.python.org/doc/current/lib/lib.html

(There are `posix' and `posixfile', both of are clearly not to be used
in a portable script.) Am I missing something?

I don't yet see any advantage to subroutines to do what split() and
join() already do, but if our repository path manipulation starts
getting more complex, then it might be worth it.
