Radu, while the comments are not as clear for ntpath, the behavior is the same. So, the comment you detailed from posixpath could be adapted to Windows by replacing '/' with 'a separator' or something of that nature.

That said, the comment in posixpath could be adapted to clear english like so:

join() inserts a separator unless the first part is empty or already ends in a separator. If a part is absolute, join() ignores the previous parts.
