Re: Poor support for \ on windows from the C API?

O.K. I understand and will work around the problem on input and output.
Do you plan to fix your file handling post 1.0 to use native path rules?

The other path related problem I have to defend against is the fact that
if a path of "." if passed into svn you get you an assert.

> pysvn info .
Assertion failed: is_canonical (base, blen), file
l:\subversion\subversion-0.32.1\subversion\libsvn_subr\path.c, line 156
