Hello Neil,

> It is my intention to try and get this FilePath library into the base,

please no!!! why you don't understand that including in base means
death of development for any library! are you really want that anyone
who need new version of your lib should recompile GHC himself?!

libs should be included in "base libs" set and i proposed a few months
ago to radically extend it by including fundamental libs, including
FilePath. but base library, which contains ghc-version specific code
and can't be upgraded using cabal, should not evolve. see our
discussion in libraries maillist

Best regards,
 Bulat                            mailto:Bulat.Ziganshin at gmail.com
