I don't see why this is relevant, or at least not the "command line
arguments" and "registry paths" parts.
We're talking about using file names in Python, not the Windows command
line (Power Shell?), and not registry paths.
I guess that if the user is using a path beginning with \\?\ they may or
may not need to use backslashes, but I have no way of testing it, and I
would expect that Python will correctly replace //?/ with backslashes the
same as it does for any other file system path.
I know that Chris said "for all paths" but in context that's to be
understood as *file system paths*. We wouldn't interpret him as meaning
instead of using dots, so I think registry paths is irrelevant.
