To me, this sounds like a strong indicator, that we should overhaul IO
in the following direction: Remove static methods in favour of a few
FileSystem objects (Windows, and Linux/Unix/Mac) with different
behaviour for case sensitivity, separators, and so on.

IO is outdated, as it is. Beginners (like this guy, perhaps) are
unable to cope with it. Advanced users find it useless.
