i dont agree, but i think Phil is
being unduly negative. other people (much bigger than us) in the
industry want standards for directory specification, independent of
implemenation. it would not be hard for VMS TeX to translate foo/bar
to [.foo]bar or whatever. If you look at Acrobat PDFmark spec, Adobe
have got things like this in there, viz OS-independent filename
specs. face it, Phil, the world is moving inexorably towards foo/bar
or foo\bar or the like, and DEC are not going to stand out for that
