Re: [Sc-devel] post-3.2 suggestion

Hi James,

 I just sent an email about precisely this kind of issue:  IMHO all file access defaults should be class variables of Platform.
This would make it easy to redirect in Main.

As for it wreaking havoc... we have network shares with OS X at UW, and this doesn't cause problems. Perhaps something needs to be done for the Windows build to avoid the problem?

If the network share is not available, then it is a problem. Reading and writing files, and creating directories, fails.

To work around it I had to override WindowsPlatform:userAppSupportDir and userExtensionDir with hard-coded strings.

(I was just trying to test my book examples in windows, but anyway message timestamping isn't working on my machine in the latest version, so that cut my testing pretty well short.)
