SOS tasks should allow forward slashes in vssserverpath

           Summary: SOS tasks should allow forward slashes in vssserverpath
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.5.1
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Optional Tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: dmkarr@earthlink.net


Despite DOS' requirement for backward slashes in directory entries for path
variables, I almost never run into a situation where I can't use forward slashes
instead.  It's much more convenient to use forward slashes, as opposed to "\\"
(with the required escape).

However, I see that in the SOS tags (Source OffSite), used for a remote
interface to VSS, will not work if the "vssserverpath" argument is specified
with forward slashes.  It will only work if the value is specified as a double
backward slashes.

It would be more convenient if the given value was translated from the
convenient form to the form that SOS requires.
