it it hardly a solution. supporting one more branch of Base would be a
nightmare. FilePath already exists as separate package so i guess that
if it will be included in Base 3.0, we will got the same situation as
with fps in 6.4/6.6 - separate package should be imported in 6.4
version, but not in 6.6
