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.
The following people support the addition of FilePath into base:
- Neil Mitchell
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)
If anyone wishes to flesh out any of these reasons, please do so below in a separate subsection for each point.
- type FilePath = String is a bad design choice, which should not be encouraged
- The base libraries are not the place for a FilePath library
- The interface in this library is poorly designed
