[Bf-committers] Native path handling for blender

Always wondered why Blender didnt use ./ rather then //.
Probably dont use a # since Blender alredy uses hashes in the filename 
to be replaced with the current frame number.
Dont realy mind what special char is used aside from that.

Though, cant the conversion also do things like say- Dont use // for 
Morph OS to go back a dir? I suppose Win32 paths work ok in Windows so 
why remove functionality from morphos. :/
