See ShellSyntax>>isAtFileSystemRoot: in CommandShell for an implementation
which currently works on Unix and Windows. I don't have an Acorn, so I
can't test that.
By the way, where would one go to obtain an actual Acorn? I've never
actually seen one, and if I were of an even mildly skeptical nature, I
would be inclined to think ... nah ... they must be real.
