Is this a bug in gnulib?

Do you have file systems where '/' does not work to separate file name
components?  Like VMS or something?  If so, it's a problem, though I'm
not sure it's a bug, as most of gnulib doesn't claim to port to VMS.  If
not, then I don't see the problem.

No, we are not supporting VMS.

It doesn't matter much to me personally, but I think some people would like to see the result contain only \ on Windows systems.

We could always post-process the result, but would you accept a patch that makes this change inside the gnulib function?
