Can you point out the places in the code (hopefully, not too many)
where the Posix assumption about file-name syntax needs to be replaced
with the Windows assumption?

If there are not too many of them, we could modify them to use one or
two user options.  For starters, these options would need to be set
manually, by the user who knows what filesystem she is working with.
Later, we could try to set them automatically.
