Why not? This is what Windows users expect.

Yikes. Watch this:

    C:\> svn st -v wc/subdir\subsubdir/subsubsubdir\file13.5

How many bits do you want to store? :-)

Really? Which wrapper scripts?

    * Shell scripts: inherently non-portable, not worth the bother.
    * Python, Perl: Can handle both forward and backward slashes on Windows.
    * Emacs: ditto.
    * vi: don't know and don't give a damn.
    * Windows batch: non-portable, but can't handle forward slashes, so
      it's actually better to have the output in the correct format

You have no ides how happy I am that VMS is practically dead. Now _that_
file name syntax was a perfect mess. :-)
