The tcltk file browser is a prebuilt widget. The Windows version apparently
returns files in proper Windows format. If all file parsing for windows
platforms should switch from c:/ to /c/, this could be parsed in an if
clause to test for windows platform. Is this kind of reparsing needed
universally for windows or just in some places? It would take some effort to
track down and change in the appropriate places (most importantly in
gui.tcl), but it is doable.
