FilePath is indeed quite nice.  You might also want to look at
System.Path and its submodules in MissingH (API docs at [1]).

I've got some stuff that FilePath doesn't, namely making paths
absolute, wildcard matching/globbing, and also a function that
converts a POSIX wildcard into a regexp.

HSH makes use of both FilePath and MissingH for its ShellEquivs
module, and has some new code in there too.
