As far as I know there's no such option. It seems to me this is really
called for and somebody should implement it. Along these lines there
should be another /proc option which finally allows Linux users to use
the beloved backslashes as path separators. I can't understand why
Linus deliberately changed the path separator from backslash to slash,
thus undermining an industry standard. Intolerable.
If you see irony or sarcasm in this mail, don't tell the hippos.
