[asdf-devel] question about relative pathname to point to parent directory

I'm not sure what you want, but try "" for current directory, ".." for up, etc.
".." is actually not recognized by ASDF but passed to the
implementation, and from it to the OS.

Paths are relative to the parent's pathname's directory.

Theists think all gods but theirs are false. Atheists simply don't make an
exception for the last one.
