Could you briefly describe what sort of behavior you see as necessary to 
introduce to Pathname.java?  The current Pathname implementation was 
designed to incorporate both Windows drive letters as DEVICE and the 
location of the JAR as a list of PATHNAMEs in the DEVICE, so I think we 
just need to get the translation right in ASDF2 rather than re-work 
Pathname.java.  Then again, I might have missed something, so would be 
interested in understanding a bit more about your analysis.
