Yah, the macro is a bit crufty. We should probably junk it and just  
agree to have a suitable function for all platforms. I think we  
actually *do* in fact, so it would merely involve agreeing to hook it  
up neatly everywhere. The original use for the macro was swapping  
dots with slashes for RISC OS but the requirements got a bit more  
complex and I had to implement a fairly complicated function to  
canonicalise filenames. It turns out I wasn't even using the macro  
anymore, which is just as well since I had defined it with the  
arguments in the wrong order...
