You know, I just had an epiphany.  (Sorry if this is
obvious to anyone - it just occurred to me.)

This has caused me headaches, too, since I use Unix
shells on Windows.  However, I just found out that you
can do this:

   java -Dpath.separator=: ....

and Java will work just beautifully with Unix-style
paths on Windows.  Just be sure you don't include
drive letters in the paths....
