That was my questoin - it is not clear to me how and where the output is 
consumed (probably ant/jar). In any case, it is only a single isolated 
change so we can do whatever we want - either a unified /-style regardless 
of platform or platform-native. As far as I can see the output does not 
include absolute path information like e.g. drive letters, which ruin 
everything anyway..

That one is a JVM flag (-cp) and already accepts both / and \ but as you 
said has different separators. It seems to me that fixing this would 
require at least a new custom classpath flag and a custom classloader.
