That would be handy.

It should make it into the Windows distribution of Hugs ;)

Can be done easily enough, if we decide to go this route, I'll move it
over and delete the original (I hate having out of sync libraries, and
I hate thinking that libraries might be out of sync, even if they are
automatically synced). The library as it stands is not suitable for
including into GHC, the patch I made is however. The library should be
structured differently, using cpp instead of os.info (as the patch
does). Also the library has reverse compatibility gunk, i.e.
System.FilePath.Version_0_10, which wants removing before it becomes
If this is the way you want to go, I'll redo the library and move it
