[actually, in emacs terms, that is directory separator syntax :-) ]

But why don't we just let the default depend on system-type

        (if (memq system-type '(windows-nt ms-dos)) ?* ?\\)

Lots of other default settings already depend on system-type,
so I don't see why this is any different, as long as we get
the proper default for GNU.
