It's an invalid command *if you execute it inside CMD.EXE*. It's perfectly
legal if you do it at the API level, or if you use it in a shell that
doesn't go way out of its way to explicitly disallow "/" in path names (e.g.
bash, tcsh, etc.)

How does ant implement mkdir? Does it call the native APIs, or does it do
this by spawning a shell?
