This is an attempt to get an idea of how people feel about the inclusion of FilePath into the base library. Do not take this as a vote, it's really not. If adding a user based on their indications in email messages (rather than explicit confirmation) I have added their name in italics.

Support

The following people support the addition of FilePath into base:

  • Neil Mitchell

Oppose

The following people oppose the addition of FilePath, with (optionally) the reason after. Please create a new item in the list for the reasons.

  • Example 1 (1,2,3)
  • Example 2 (3)

Opposed reasons

If anyone wishes to flesh out any of these reasons, please do so below in a separate subsection for each point.

  1. type FilePath = String is a bad design choice, which should not be encouraged
  2. The base libraries are not the place for a FilePath library
  3. The interface in this library is poorly designed
