Is it really obsolete ?
How does the MacOS port deal with / in file names ?

I'm not sure if it's a good idea.
I recently changed uniquify.el to work on non-Unix systems and it doesn't
rely on directory-sep-char for correctness, but it does use it to
display paths in the "native" format.

I don't know how important it is (I actually don't use non-Unix systems),
but I think it's worth considering whether Emacs should try to
display paths in unix style or in native style.
