Pretty much every language uses backslash as an 
escape character, so us DOS/Win folks are quite 
used to it.

Actually, DOS and Windows are happy with forward 
slashes in most cases. The backslash is required 
by the command shell, but apps can do things like 
open("../dir/myfile") with no trouble. I haven't 
used a directory-related backslash in a Windows 
app for years.
