Do forward slashes get turned into backslashes for xxxx-args arguments in
Windows? Could someone point me to the code that does it? I could add a
setup flag that disables the translation, or maybe detect the "http://" and
just preserve what looks to be URLs.
BTW, cabal-make now has a target that auto-subscribes to all wiki talk pages
generated for a project.
