#+asdf-unix means we have /POSIX/namestrings/
as opposed to c:\Windows\namestrings\ or MacOS 9:namestrings:
or Genera:>namestrings> or what else have you.
This includes cygwin and MacOS X.

In particular, under a asdf-unix environment, PATH-like variables
use #\: as a delimiter, whereas under other environments,
they use #\; as a delimiter.

Am I correct that I should assume :asdf-unix when :darwin is in the *features*
even though :unix isn't?
