[Python-Dev] Path PEP and the division operator

I was tinkering with something today, and wondered whether it would cause 
fewer objections if the PEP used the floor division operator (//) to combine 
path fragments, instead of the true division operator?

The parallel to directory separators is still there, but the syntax isn't tied 
quite so strongly to the Unix path separator.
