pdksh and UNC paths

Just a quick pdksh question.

I'm running pdksh 5.2.13, with 20.1 (NT4 SP3) and it's great!  Just one
problem:  the 'cd' command doesn't understand any UNC path notation
(like bash does), so I can't 'cd' onto the network.  (I can if I map
a network path to a local drive letter, then mount that drive letter
to a unix path).  Also, I can't use the "//<drive letter>" notation
to cd to another local drive.

I'm pretty sure that I could add this functionality to pdksh, but
before I try, has anyone else added this to pdksh?
