OK, that's how I thought things would work out.  

Now we just need to fix Path.cs up so that AltDirectorySeparatorChar 
is considered in operations like GetFileName etc (when set).

Unix doesn't accept '\' as a separator.  But we can make all this
academic by introducing a "normalize path" call to each of the
filesystem-related internalcalls which will turn both '/' and '\'
into the path separator of the underlying system.  Then it won't
matter what the separators are set to at the C# level.
