For any path that is interpreted by Apache, forward slashes are
preferred.  There are some very limitted circumstances where the path
is not interpreted by apache, but passed directly to windows (such as
piped logging programs), where you may need to use back-slashes.  But,
of course, then you have to deal with all sorts of escaping-issues.
