I guess I'm not sure I understand. Why is it necessary to get the
active implementations to agree on how to parse this? Isn't it an
alternative to interpret the substring "." using
*default-pathname-defaults* and ".." using *default-pathname-defaults*
and :relative :back?
I'm sure you understand this far better than I do, so perhaps there's
something that makes this a non-starter....
