Seems to me this approach handles Windows better. There is no single
"current directory"; it's one per drive letter (plus one for
"default", which might not be a drive letter if you "cd" to a UNC
path). It also handles building paths for processes launched
somewhere not the current directory, which seems like a big win to me.
