OT: Long path names in windows

From: Henderson, Michael D <michael.d.henderson_at_lmco.com>

Completely off topic, but what's the trade-off between absolute and
relative paths? Is it extra calls to stat() or are '.' and '..' just
faster because they're stored at the beginning of the directory entry?

Just curious,
Mike

I've been mildly pushing for Subversion use absolute paths internally
forEVER. Good luck in your effort. :-)
