I agree with Scott that this should be in the filesystem.  If not, you
have to add it to every last application that uses filenames.  (Here,
`/home/foo' works everywhere for all foo, although I'm not entirely
happy about the symlink farm that makes it happen...)

The latest full release is still 1.4, but you might like to try the
latest beta release 1.5b2.  You can get it from these places.


Let me know if you don't have the one-line patch I posted to the list
the other day.
