The FilePath issue has been discussed at length before. The problem is
that different OS:es define file paths to be different things (i.e.
Unicode or bytes.) The FilePath type somehow has to bridge that, that
will be difficult. My main grip with FilePath right now is that it's
not an abstract type.
